Traffic Accident in Emirates Road Due to Fog
Brigadier General Saif Mihir Mazrouei, Director of Traffic Department in Dubai Police, said that the dense fog was a major cause of the incident on Emirates Road in the direction towards Abu Dhabi around 7:30am. Police patrols were sent to avoid further collision of other vehicles.
Mazrouei appealed to road users to exercise caution especially in foggy weather and to stay committed to security and safety rules when driving.
Mazrouei stressed the importance of reducing speed while driving in these circumstances, because the driver may not have the opportunity to use the brakes under his inability to see because of the fog, considering that the error in these circumstances may cost the driver his life.
