UAE motorists warned ahead of poor visibility on roads
The visibility on the roads can be less than 3,000 meters at certain times. Especially during the wee hours in the morning.
Earlier this Sunday, early morning, motorists faced poor visibility which caused the disruption of traffic movements on several roads.
Motorists have been warned by The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) to take certain precautions when driving on roads. Extra care must be taken when maneuvering in the expected bad horizontal visibility due to blowing dust and sand. The visibility is sure to be reduced to less than 3,000 meters due to strong winds that blow dust and sand.
Police have taken to their social media account to mention the residents of UAE to take proper care when driving on roads at the time of low visibility.
