The law will go into effect January 15.
Emirates Today reports that cameras equipped with digital cameras operating on all Abu Dhabi highways will record fixed distances between vehicles.
The digital challan system has a fixed distance range for the vehicles by the traffic police. In this regard, the traffic police safety department official said that the distance between the vehicles has been set to a world standard to prevent accidents.
Most of the accidents happen because of lack of traffic between the vehicles, the responsible said. If the driver of the forward car suddenly brakes for some reason, the driver of the rear car should have enough time to control his vehicle.
A collision is ensured if the vehicle is insufficient in the distance.
In keeping with the rules of road safety, the distance between the vehicles by the traffic police has been determined by the speed of the vehicles.
Traffic Accident Prevention Committee expert Jamal Al-Amri says the distance between vehicles is determined according to world standards, if the speed of the front vehicle is 80km / h, the rear car should be at least less than that. Must be 22 meters away. The driver of the rear of the vehicle at a speed of 120 km / h should have a minimum distance of 50 meters, which is safe for both.
Al-Amri added that sometimes some people get in the rear of the car in front of them while driving in a very dangerous way, often causing the driver of the front car to see the speeding car in their rear. That is definitely causing the accident.
Meanwhile, traffic police sources said that Article 178 of the Traffic Laws, which was passed in 2017, clears 400 UAE dirhams while keeping drivers below the fixed distance between vehicles and less than 4 points on the driver Become.
