    Penalty for running a red light in Saudi Arabia – NOT SEVERE ENOUGH

    The driver should be given 7 days in gaol – and the car should be crushed.

    Every day when driving in Saudi, I see guys running red lights – or overtaking stationary traffic at a light by racing down the left turn lane and then cutting back in at the middle of the junction. A few days ago a guy in a Toyota Landcruiser forced his way back into the line of traffic at high speed after racing down the left turn lane – and slammed into the back of a car just moving forward as the light changed to green, he hit it with such force that the trunk/boot of the other car was completely crushed to the rear window. Sheer madness.

    i think this is not yet implemented until now coz if you will check MOI traffic violations and penalties, it was still specified from 300sr and not more than 900sr penalty for violation especially beating the red light.
