SR 2,000 fine for crossing highways by foot

The Saudi traffic police have confirmed that pedestrians crossing highways by foot from undesignated places would be charged a fine of SR 1,000 to SR 2,000.

In a tweet made by the traffic police, they explained that pedestrians crossing highways endanger their lives, create traffic confusion, and become the cause of traffic accidents. 

How do you cross highways?

Due to these issues, pedestrian bridges are strongly recommended to cross highways. However, it is also a fact that there are minimal pedestrian bridges on Saudi roads.

The government is working on making the roads more walk-friendly for the people living in Saudi Arabia and constructing more pedestrian bridges.

The much awaited bridge was opened last week! Pedestrian Bridge on "Sabeen Street" (Prince Majed Street) Opposite to Flamingo Mall in Aziziyah, Jeddah. #Jeddah #JeddahCity #jeddahlife #Aziziyah#سبعين #جدة #العزيزية #مدينة_جدة
