TRAFFIC police will be monitoring "yellow box" infringements at busy junctions during rush hour following a spate of complaints, it has been announced.
Fines of BD10 will be dished out to people who ignore the rules at such junctions.
"We found out that there are many violations taking place at the yellow boxes, so we have appointed patrol vehicles during peak hours to report them," said General Directorate of Traffic traffic culture director Major Moosa Al Dossary.
The yellow boxes were introduced to stop drivers entering busy junctions, even if their traffic light is green.
They are supposed to prevent people entering the junction if there is no room for them to exit before traffic lights change to red.
Maj Al Dossary said some people were intimidated into breaking the rule by fellow motorists honking at them, particularly near the Sheraton Hotel.
"This act is causing many traffic jams and is considered a violation," he said.
