The police called on motorists to drive with caution and follow the traffic rules.

The Dubai Police on Wednesday warned motorists against driving at high speeds on major highways, following the lifting of restrictions in the emirate.

"Driving at high speeds causes the most serious traffic accidents. We advise you to adhere to the legal speed limits," the police said on Twitter.


As the emirate bounces back to normalcy, shopping malls and the private sector can operate with 100 per cent capacity starting today by adhering to strict safety measures. The decision is part of the gradual reopening of economic activities in the emirate and efforts to restore normalcy.

Earlier, Dubai Police warned residents about a Dh3,000 fine for stepping out during curfew hours (namely, between 11pm and 6am), except for emergencies.

Taking to Twitter, the police explained that residents can step out during "curfew times" only for:
> Buying food and medicines
> Health emergencies
> Job-related purposes in vital sectors.
Residents need to obtain a permit from before venturing out during these hours, the police added.

Inspections will be held to ensure full adherence to guidelines.
