Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Matkoum has issued a decree advising which authorities are responsible for the various different operations of the Dubai Tram. This decree also gives details of the various fines that will be issued if anyone crosses a red light intersection with the tramway – whether they cause an accident or injury or not.
Fines and driving bans vary from 2,000 dirhams to 30,000 dirhams and range from 30 days to one year. Further details can be found at Emirates 24/7.
The message that is being sent seems to be clear – do not cross a read light on the Dubai Tramway! The whole public transport system is put in place to let traffic flow more freely and blocking the tramways will be a great hindrance to getting this to happen.
