Reminder in order to prevent accidents.

The Dubai Police on Thursday warned pedestrians against the use of mobile phones while crossing the road.

In a brief tweet, the police force reminded residents that avoiding the use of mobiles is the safe way to cross roads.

Earlier, UAE authorities have said that it is dangerous for pedestrians to chat or text messages on their mobile phones while crossing the road as it often leads to distracted walking and run-over accidents that cause deaths and severe injuries.

“Pedestrians who use their mobile phones while walking or crossing roads pose a danger to themselves and other road users, because their attention is taken by what they are doing and they tend to forget about the traffic around them,” said Jamal Al Ameri from the Abu Dhabi traffic police department.
