Dubai Police Issues Warning for Cyclists and E-Scooter Riders

Dubai Police and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) recently conducted a campaign to promote safety for cyclists and e-scooter users at famous locations, including Kite and Jumeirah Beaches. The campaign covered over 1,500 individuals.

However, the authorities also found some violations, such as not wearing safety gear, riding in the wrong direction, and using designated vehicle paths without permission. These violations can put the safety of road users at risk.
