This will minimise the chances of jumping red lights and causing danger while rushing home to catch up the Iftar, said Col Hamad Mubarak Al Amiri, Director of Capital Traffic at the Abu Dhabi Police.

From the first day of Ramadan, the Police have started to distribute food packets and drinking water on the roads to help motorists end their fast at the sunset. The initiative is made possible in association with Khalifa bin Zayed Charity Foundation.

Amiri asked the motorists to slowdown as soon as the green light changes to yellow to avoid chances of colliding with vehicles coming from other directions.
