Five cars have been impounded by Abu Dhabi Police after their owners were caught driving recklessly outside a school in Al Ain in celebration of the end of the school year.

The drivers have been referred to public prosecution. Brigadier Hussein Ahmad Al Harthi, director of the Traffic and Patrol Department, said irresponsible behaviour by young drivers could cause serious accidents.

A new campaign to prevent car and motorcycle parades - particularly besides schools in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Garbiyah - would be launched, he added.
