High awareness of road users about wrong traffic behaviour led to a 60% decrease in traffic violations,” stated Head of Traffic Awareness Division at the General Directorate of Traffic, Captain Abdullah Khalid Al-Moaili.
Al-Moaili assured that this percentage was concluded after comparing statistics of the previous two years. He confirmed that statistics showed a decrease in traffic violations in general and in exceeding the speed limits in particular.
Al-Moalil also stressed the importance of not taking pictures of accidents nor the injured in accidents. He explained that these wrong-doings were punishable by the law and might lead to imprisonment for a period not exceeding 6 months and a fine not exceeding BD50.
