Abu Dhabi Police will ensure the safety of children riding in cars. A child seat must be installed in the car for children under 10 years old. Children must not be left alone in the car.
Abu Dhabi Police Director Brigadier-General Mohammad Dhani Al Hamiri stated that surveillance is being intensified in order to catch lawbreakers. It is a crime to drive with children in the front seats. The driver’s license will also be subject to a 400 dirham fine and 4 black points. According to the study, seat belts provide safety of 40-60%.
Children in the front seat will feel the same impact as falling 10 stories from a building if they are involved in an accident. No matter if they’re in the back or front, passengers must use seat belts.
