Traffic authorities across the emirates cautioned motorists against speeding and urged them to drive carefully because of the low visibility. The Abu Dhabi Police have announced reduction of speed limits on major roads in the emirate until the visibility improved.
Maximum speed limit is reduced to 80kmph on Trucks road (Al Fayah), Mohammed Bin Rashid road (Abu Dhabi – Dubai) and Maktoum Bin Rashid road (Abu Dhabi – Dubai) and (Al Ruwais - Al Sila) road. The police also urged drivers to follow the directions shown on the electronic display boards for a safe driving.
According to the NCM, the weather on Wednesday will be fair to partly cloudy at times, with a rise in temperature. Maximum temperature is expected to rise up to 32 degree Celsius in some internal areas.
