Abu Dhabi, January 19, 2014
The Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police has forbidden trucks and large vehicles from driving on internal and external roads during fog.
Such vehicles can continue their trips only after clear visibility returns, a statement said.
Trucks and large vehicles are also not allowed to enter Abu Dhabi City during peak traffic hours, it said.
The directorate warned drivers that if these rules are violated, punishments will be considerable. This step aims to promote traffic safety during foggy weather conditions and reduce the number of traffic accidents, it said.
Lt Colonel Jamal Salem Al Ameri, chief of public relations section in the Traffic and Patrols directorate, urged company owners and truck drivers to adhere to traffic laws and regulations.
He said that trucks weighing 2.5 tons or more are not allowed to enter Abu Dhabi City during foggy weather conditions and peak traffic hours, which were identified as the hours between 7:30 am and 9:30 am and 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. – TradeArabia News Service
