Police have advised drivers to use good quality tyres that conform to specifications and to ensure that their car tyres are always in good condition.
Traffic authorities in the emirate also say that major causes of traffic accidents during the summer include driving with expired and worn-out tyres, underinflated or overinflated tyres and overloading of vehicles.
“Drivers should regularly check their car tyres to ensure they are in a good condition as air pressure in them normally increases especially in hot weather condition,” police say.
Authorities also advised motorists to stop their car safely and turn off the engine as soon as they realise something may be wrong.

Motorists caught flouting rules and driving with worn or damaged tyres will be fined Dh500 and have four black points put on their driving licences. Their vehicle will also be also impounded for a week.
