Authorities urged residents to obtain information from official sources.

The Abu Dhabi Police had earlier warned against ‘rubbernecking’, which is a punishable traffic offence in the UAE. The authority said those who gather around accident sites obstruct traffic flow. They also impede the arrival of emergency vehicles, which is crucial to saving lives.

The police also warned residents against taking photos and videos of accident sites and sharing them on social media. Such actions by curious individuals seeking to exploit these unfortunate incidents for personal gain are considered highly inappropriate and can lead to legal consequences for those involved.
