Abu Dhabi Po­lice re­veal worst driv­ers, in­clud­ing one who clocked 38 of­fences

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

“In the space of two days I have ob­served some hor­ren­dous driv­ing; jump­ing lights, ag­gres­sive tail­gat­ing, over­tak­ing on the hard shoul­der and FaceTime whilst driv­ing (swerv­ing all over the place). It’s time to get tough. Take li­cence away and im­pound ve­hi­cle..”

ADAM TESDALE

“They al­low them­selves to get that many fines be­cause the driver has the mind­set of ‘it’s ok I’ll just pay the fines once my reg­is­tra­tion needs re­new­ing’. A sim­i­lar sys­tem to Aus­tralia/UK needs to be adopted that if you don’t pay within a suit­able time the amount gets in­creased or if you reach a cer­tain amount of vi­o­la­tions in a cer­tain pe­riod you have your li­cence re­voked. Th­ese are the peo­ple that have no re­gard to the safety of others on the roads.”

STACEY RUS­SELL

“Then why ev­ery year do you give 50% off fines? Dou­ble them not give dis­count and start ban­ning th­ese id­iots for a year or two not a month.”

JAMES STE­WART MCCUL­LOCH

“The only way is name and shame by pub­lish­ing names next to the dreaded driv­ing li­cence photo on the po­lice FB page. It will stop young ppl from vi­o­lat­ing road rules.”
