The Abu Dhabi Police on Friday shared a video demonstrating the dangers of crossing the road from non-designated areas.

The video shows a man hurriedly walking across a busy road, at a roundabout. Just as he is about to reach the other side, after crossing two lanes of the three-track road, a vehicle hits him.

In another instance in the clip, two men are seen jaywalking on a busy road before they are hit by a pick-up truck.

In the past, residents have been urged to avoid jaywalking and not to cross the road at undesignated spots. They have been advised to use footbridges and zebra crossings for their own safety.

Jaywalking invites a fine of Dh400 as it poses danger to both the pedestrian as well road users.
