Abu Dhabi: Drivers are warned against stopping inside the yellow box on intersections, the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police said.

The Directorate urged motorists to avoid crossing traffic lights unless roads are clear of congestion to make room for vehicles coming from the opposite direction while street lights change colour.

The fine for stopping in the yellow box is Dh500 and, according to police officials, a larger number of surveillance cameras are being placed at intersections as well as patrol cars to catch violators.
