ABU DHABI - The fine for crossing the street from non-designated places by pedestrians will go up from Dh50 to Dh200, Colonel Hamad Adeel Al Shamsi, Director of Traffic and Patrols Department at Abu Dhabi Police, told Khaleej Times recently.

The department had started to impose Dh50 as fine against violators from February but the amount had increased to Dh200 following the penalties stipulated by the black points system and the amended rules.

The fine would be paid by the jaywalker on the spot. In case he/she did not pay, the policeman would take away his/her identify card, which would be returned only after the offender paid the fine at the Traffic Department, he noted.

The Dh200 fine against jaywalking is being enforced throughout the country, he added.
