Ministry of Interior traffic police will increase road patrols outside schools the next few days to catch illegal drivers and dangerous driving as the term comes to an end.

In a statement, the ministry said it was common for pupils to celebrate the end of the school year with dangerous road displays on motorbikes.

These antics can often lead to serious injury. Khameas Mohammed, acting director general of Abu Dhabi traffic police, said they have already asked schools to warn pupils. He has also called on families and guardians not to allow unlicensed children to drive.
