Out of the hundreds of different traffic violations possible in the some of the most common offenses include texting while driving, not wearing your seatbelt, and using a hand-held mobile phone behind the wheel.

There are however loads of violations that incur hefty fines although they aren’t immediately obvious. “Entering a road dangerously” will make you AED600 poorer but you won’t get any black points on your driving licence. The somewhat ambiguous “Driving in a way that endangers people,” on the other hand, will cost you 23 black points and AED2,000, plus a free stay for your car in the impound lot for 60 days.

The family of four is seen enjoying their drive, and accruing a total of AED4,200 in fines and 20 black points at the same time.

But it’s the common mistakes people make on a daily basis that end up having the biggest impact on motoring in our region — as a result the Dubai Police has released a video highlighting a seemingly innocent average Emirati family going about their business, while committing several traffic violations in the process.

In their Ford Flex, the family of four is seen enjoying their drive, and accruing a total of AED4,200 in fines and 20 black points at the same time.

Failure to fix child seats for children under four years old is a AED400 fine, and the same goes for allowing children under the age of 10 to sit in the front seat. Additionally being distracted on the road gets you four black points and a fine of AED800, and failure to fasten a seatbelt costs you AED400 with four black points to boot. Using a mobile phone in your hand and swerving across road lanes are both violations also netting you four black points each, and costing AED1,000 and AED800 respectively. So, “Is it worth it?” Watch the video below…
