The police and the civil defence have warned that such behaviour hampers the work of emergency responders and affects the flow of traffic.

The offence is punishable with an AED 1,000 fine.

The authorities have also warned of legal action against people who post pictures and videos of traffic accident scenes and mishaps on social media.
