Driving in the UAE is quite different from other areas in the world because weather status can complicate terrain conditions here, making it more difficult for drivers to navigate the road, and ending up in accidents for some, unfortunately.
This being the case, authorities have been on the lookout for any weather changes expected to affect the country, in order to raise awareness among drivers who ply the roads on a daily basis.
