Accident in Mussaffah, Abu Dhabi

Injured drivers were taken to the nearest hospital and were reported with minor to moderate injuries. Abu Dhabi Police reminds all motorists to follow the country’s traffic laws as well as follow speed limits. Drivers are also advised to stay focused on the road.

It’s important to be cautious when driving and to not be distracted while on the road. Previous incidents of accidents in the highway due to foggy weather were reported and while the weather may be clearer nowadays, it does not mean that we have to stay complacent. We still need to ensure safety while driving not only for us, but for our passengers. We hope this serves as a reminder to everyone.
