“Since the start of the current year, the Department has recorded 538 road accidents and mishappening due to tailgating violations, which caused the death of ten people and left 367 suffering from various injuries,” he confirmed.

“This morning (Thursday, 27th of October), we deployed our patrols after receiving a report asserting and pleading that a significant accident between two lorries and four light vehicles occurred on Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road after Al Rashidiya Bridge, where one driver died on the scenic spot, and five others supported minor to moderate injuries,” Maj. Gen. Al Mazrouei elaborated.

“The accident happened when the traffic was blocked by a minor accident between a lorry and several light vehicles. However, as the drivers failed to maintain a safe distance for the lorry coming from the back, it crashed into a bus upfront, kept driving and collided into another lorry loaded with cement and bricks, which caused congestion across roads,” he explained.

The Director of the General of the Traffic Department pointed out that the penalty for tailgating is an AED 400 fine and four black traffic points.
