The driving licenses of 324 motorists have been taken away in Abu Dhabi over the last six months after the motorists reached the limit of their cumulative traffic points, reports UAE official news agency WAM. The motorists include 102 UAE nationals, 77 Arab nationals and 130 Asians among others.
Col. Hamad Adeel Al Shamsi, director of the Department of Traffic and Patrols of Abu Dhabi police, said that when a motorist accumulated 24 traffic points, his license is withdrawn. A motorist charged twice for exceeding the traffic points would not retrieve his license unless re-trained at a driving school.
