The warning aims to reduce accidents.
Stepping up its crackdown on jaywalking, the Dubai Police on Tuesday issued a warning to pedestrians not to cross the road at undesignated places.
“Crossing from an unauthorized pedestrian lane is illegal and anyone caught doing so is liable to pay a fine of Dh400,” the Dubai police said in a tweet.

The initiative also targets the motorists stressing that all motorists should drive with caution and give priority to pedestrians. Not giving way to pedestrians is punishable by Dh500 fine and 6 traffic points, Al Falasi noted.
