Dubai: The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has urged motorists to drive safely during foggy and rainy conditions.
The call was part of the RTA’s seasonal campaign to raise motorists’ awareness about responsible driving under changing weather conditions. The past few days have seen Dubai waking up to dense, foggy mornings.
Maitha Mohammad Bin Adai, CEO of RTA Traffic and Roads Agency, called on motorists to exercise caution during the days and weeks ahead, which have the potential of being covered in blankets of fog, and possibly rainfall.
“During the campaign, which started early October and continues till the end of this year, the RTA inspectors distributed informative leaflets to drivers in several parts of Dubai in collaboration with Al Ahli Driving Institute. The campaign focused on parking lots of the Land Department, Dubai Courts, Department of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Dubai Media City, RTA Customers Service Centres and truck drivers at JAFZA,” Bin Adai said.
