WATCH: Asian Man Airlifted After Major Road Accident in UAE

According to Brigadier Salem bin Brak Al Dhaheiri, Director of the Peripheral Areas Traffic Department, of Abu Dhabi police’s Traffic and Patrols Directorate, the initial investigation revealed that accident occurred because the truck driver had committed a wrong U-turn and did not observe lane discipline while driving on the road.

Following the incident, Al Dhaheiri had urged motorists and road users to heed caution when driving, exercise proper lane discipline, avoid reckless swerving, and to stick to speed limits on the road in order to avoid such kinds of incidents.

With the holiday season already upon us, more motorists are expected to be out on the road. And with the recent changes in weather conditions in the country, it’s important for drivers to be mindful of their road etiquettes.

Moreover, the Abu Dhabi Police has launched a number of initiatives to reinforce road safety by raising the awareness of residents through social media, and by soliciting feedback from citizens through #yourcomment in order to come up with better solutions in addressing problems of this nature.
