Video footage shows a driver performing dangerous manoeuvres and risking the lives of other motorists in Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi Police, in co-operation with the Follow-up and Control Centre in the emirate, posted the video on its social media pages on Friday and invited the public to comment.

The footage shows the driver reversing a red SUV on a motorway before crossing three lanes of traffic to take an exit.

Several other clips previously posted online by Abu Dhabi Police revealed the dangers of breaking traffic and safety rules, with some traffic accidents resulting in loss of life and property.

Abu Dhabi Police caught dozens of motorists who failed to give way to emergency vehicles last year.

Police issued 126 fines to drivers who held up ambulances, police cars, civil defence vehicles and official motorcades.

Those caught can be fined Dh3,000 ($817), receive six black points on their licence and have their vehicle impounded for 30 days.
