Police in Abu Dhabi are cracking down on e-scooter riders and cyclists who don’t comply with the rules.
Inspections are being stepped up following the conclusion of a two-month long awareness campaign.
The authority is highlighting the importance of using designated paths and wearing a protective helmet and a reflective jacket.
Scooters with seats are prohibited while a bicycle or e-scooter must have only one rider.
Riders must also avoid carrying any items that could affect their balance.

The electric scooter is designed to carry one person only, so do not carry another passenger with you to avoid losing your balance. pic.twitter.com/1khCvmBZs1
