Motorists are advised to be extra cautious while driving in foggy weather.

Dense fog in parts of the city slowed commuters on Sunday morning. The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) has called on drivers to take all precautions and follow traffic regulations because of fog formation with poor visibility.

Fog was particularly dense on Sheikh Zayed Road, which caused slow-moving traffic when approaching the Dubai Parks and Resort towards Abu Dhabi and over Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road near Al Maktoum International Airport.

Dubai Police reported the accident at 9:15am and advised motorists to take caution and take alternative routes to avoid long delays.

"Accident on Al Khail Road towards Jebel Ali, resulting in traffic delays. Please drive carefully and safely," Dubai Police said on Twitter.

Traffic build-up was reported near Jumeirah Village Circle, Al Barsha, Al Quoz 1, Ras Al Khor Industrial Area and near Last Exit on Shaikh Zayed Road heading towards Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club - Abu Dhabi.
