ABU DHABI: The Abu Dhabi Police, in cooperation with the Integrated Transport Centre and the Emirates Transport Corporation – Abu Dhabi, has activated the radars that will automatically monitor motorists who violate rules by not stopping when “stop” sign arms on school buses are displayed.
The Abu Dhabi Police warned motorists to stop when they see the stop signs of school buses or face a fine of Dh1,000 and ten black points.
Also, school bus drivers who fail to open the stop sign while dropping off students will be slapped with an Dh500 fine and six black points.
Radars have been installed on school buses in Abu Dhabi to detect motorists ignoring the “stop” signs.
Police pointed out that motorists are supposed to stop in both directions on a two-way road when the “stop” sign arm has been put out, at a distance of five metres from the school bus.
