Abu Dhabi Police urges motorists to avoid valleys during heavy rain

Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Police (ADP) urged motorists to drive carefully on internal and external roads during heavy rain and volatile weather conditions, as well as to avoid valleys and water pools and follow the instructions of official authorities.

It also urged motorists to follow weather forecasts before travelling, lower their road speed and leave a safe distance between vehicles.

The ADP explained the risks posed by not paying attention to the road when using mobile phones to take photos, affirming the importance of committing to speed limits.

Motorists have been told to abide by speed limits displayed on the electronic sign boards. Speeds are reduced to 80kmph on some roads during adverse weather conditions.

Residents have been asked to download SOS – AD999- App and avail the services of the “emergency system”.

The UAE’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) took to Twitter to alert residents of the weather conditions.

“With the expectation that some eastern and southern regions of the country will witness instability accompanied by rain and winds of varying intensity that raise dust, MoI calls (on residents) to avoid going to flowing valleys and water ponds.”

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) cautioned the residents of poor visibility due to blowing dust and sand and asked everyone to follow the safety measures during unstable weather conditions.

Earlier in the day, code-red alerts were issued by the weather authorities for several parts of the UAE following heavy rains that hit the country late afternoon on Thursday.

According to the weather department, heavy rains were witnessed in several areas in Al Ain and parts of Dubai.
