Video: Crowding at accident sites can attract AED 1,000 in fines

Abu Dhabi Police

Abu Dhabi Police are reminding motorists and pedestrians against crowding at accident sites.

In a video posted on their social media channels, the authority reminded that obstructing traffic around an accident site will result in a fine of AED 1,000.

In fact, filming people and vehicles involved in the accidents and sharing or posting those visuals on social media is also punishable under the UAE law.

Often, overcrowding impedes the arrival of ambulances, emergency vehicles, traffic patrols and civil defence which can hinder life-saving aid and timely treatment of injuries.

Foot traffic around the scene of an accident can also lead to run-over accidents.
