Abu Dhabi announces ban on heavy vehicles during fog

The Abu Dhabi Police have announced a ban on trucks, heavy vehicles, and buses during foggy conditions.

Heavy vehicles are not allowed on the internal and external roads of the Emirate till visibility is restored.

The police said the move would contribute to enhancing traffic safety and make the roads safer.

Heavy vehicles that ply on the roads during the fog will be slapped with a Dh400 fine and four traffic black points.

Earlier today, one person was killed and eight others injured in a 19-vehicle pile-up crash in Abu Dhabi. The accident was caused by low visibility due to the fog.
