Abu Dhabi Police are implementing an automated camera system on school buses to catch 'stop sign' violators.
In a statement, the authorities explained that the camera will capture details of all vehicles that are within five metres of the device.
According to the UAE traffic laws, vehicles travelling on both directions must come to a complete halt when the school bus 'stop sign' is on.
