Ugaliin na ang mas maingat na pagmamaneho; para sa kaligtasan niyo, ng mga tao sa kalsada, at upang makaiwas sa mga mas pinagtibay na mga penalty. Tinting your car windows or merely taking a quick look at that incoming message on your phone while driving can cost you plenty.

To curb motorists from flouting traffic rules, Abu Dhabi Police are carrying out a year-long campaign to make drivers aware of the traffic rules. Ang pagpapa-tint ng sasakyan ay hindi traffic violation per se. Pero may hangganan as to how dark your car windows can go?

According to the federal traffic law, tinted windows that exceed 50 percent can bring a Dh1,500 fine.

If motorists are distracted in any way, or text while driving, they will be slapped with a Dh800 fine and four black points. Hinihikayat ang lahat na gumamit ng hands-free, Bluetooth, or earphones para hindi maabala sa pagmamaneho. Dagdag pa rito, ang mga maiingay na sasakyan that has had its engine modified can bring a fine of Dh2,000 and motorists will get as many as 12 black points.

Abu Dhabi Police have carried out a number of measures to enhance road safety, which include increasing the number of police patrols, installation of radars, and carrying out campaigns to raise public awareness, in addition to directing traffic during fog and other instances of low-visibility.

Heavy trucks have also been targeted by police, which led to a 58 percent drop in fatalities during the first eight months of this year as compared to the same period in 2016, with the number falling from 31 to 13.

The number of people who suffered severe injuries decreased by 63 percent, from 16 to six, from January 1 to August 31, while the number of accidents dropped by 54 percent from 118 to 54.
