There have also been temporary speed limit reductions for all vehicles…

Abu Dhabi Police have warned truck, bus and goods vehicle drivers to stay off the road during the UAE’s recent morning foggy spells.

Those that flout the rule will be liable for a Dhs500 fine and four black points on their license.

The emirate’s police force has also been adding temporary speed limits to certain roads, that pose significant collision risk during periods of reduced visibility.

Routes reduced to 80kph limits include Trucks Road (Al Fayah); Mohammed Bin Rashid road; Sweihan Road; Abu Al Abyad – Al Ghwaifat road; and Al Wathbah – Al Khatim.

Restrictions typically begin around 1am, and have been lifted at around 10.30am. To make sure you stay informed about these temporary changes to speed limits, make sure you’re following the Abu Dhabi Police social media channels.
