On the video post, it flashed messages in English, Hindi, Malyalam and Arabic informing drivers driving at lower speed to stick to the the right side and free the left side for fast driving vehicles. It also mentioned that a fine of dhs 400 would be given if drivers failed to give priority to vehicles coming from the back or from the left side

Road safety principles suggest the ‘two-second rule’ while keeping a distance between two vehicles. What it means is that while driving, a driver should be at least two seconds worth of stopping distance from the vehicle in front.
