Wrong us­age of hazard lights leads to crashes, warn po­lice

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

abu dhabi — Un­nec­es­sar­ily us­ing hazard lights while driv­ing in foggy con­di­tions can dis­tract other mo­torists and lead to “dan­ger­ous ac­ci­dents”, the Abu Dhabi Po­lice have warned.

The po­lice urged mo­torists to use hazard lights only when stop­ping at the road­side in case of ac­ci­dents; when­ever there are “other im­ped­i­ments that re­quire stop­ping in the mid­dle of the road; or when there is a real dan­ger ahead that other driv­ers must be warned about”.

Ac­cord­ing to traf­fic reg­u­la­tions, mo­torists vi­o­lat­ing rules dur­ing foggy weather con­di­tions will be fined Dh500 and four black points. —
