Dubai Police urges Motorists to be Extra Cautious when Driving in Rainy Weather
The Dubai Police has urged road users to exercise caution, adhere to safety rules, and reduce driving speeds during rainy and unstable weather conditions.
Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, said motorists should always be aware of changing road-weather conditions, especially over the next few days. He urged motorists to ensure their vehicles are in good condition and check the tires, brakes, windshield wipers, and lights before the trip.
Maj. Gen. Al Mazroui also urged motorists to keep a sufficient, safe distance between vehicles, fasten seat belts, pay attention to the road and refrain from taking pictures or using handheld phones when driving.
They are encouraged to take time before their journey to review weather forecasts and reports through accredited media and competent authorities in the country to avoid dangerous traffic accidents.
The director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police also appealed to the public to reduce speed and drive with caution, remain vigilant to ensure the safety of all road users, and turn on low-beam headlights when visibility is reduced.
“Motorists are also advised to follow weather forecasts via official channels and be ready to comply with instructions issued by relevant authorities,” Maj. Gen. Al Mazroui concluded.
