No selfies in Sharjah

Well, at least not while you’re driving

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Well, at least not while you’re driving. A new campaign by Sharjah Police to promote safer driving has highlighted people taking selfies behind the wheel as the latest issue on the roads. Despite repeated warnings from police, some motorists continue to use their phones while driving, resulting in fines of Dhs200 and four black points. Meanwhile, in Dubai, the Ministry of Interior has announced a new Dhs1,000 fine for women seen to be applying make-up, men combing their hair or adjusting traditional Arabic headwear while driving, with the possibility of 12 black points and vehicle impoundment. Motorists holding mobile phones in their hands rather than continuing to use a hands-free at traffic lights also risk a fine of Dhs200 and four black points.
