Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan was asked:


Some of the Students of Knowledge empathize the prohibition of violating the traffic signs and speeding because it opposes the system of the ruler, just as it leads to killing innocent people. So what is the legislated ruling in these contemporary issues?


“The prohibition of violating the traffic is not hidden due to the mentioned harms. Each one of them alone requires prohibition, so how about if they combine. This action would encourage others to expose the people to danger and terrorizing them. The traffic signs will then become valueless. We ask Allah to facilitate everyone to what is correct. May Peace and Blessings be upon our Prophet and his followers and his Companions”.
