Due to High Volumes of Vehicles near Mosques
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Wednesday, July 8th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
The Traffic Section at the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police warned motorists about the dangers of stopping in roundabouts, especially near crowded mosques. This behavior leads to blocking traffic flow and results in traffic accidents.
Major Matar Mohamed Al Muhairi, Acting Chief of Al Ain Traffic Section, called upon motorists to adhere to traffic rules while they park their cars to perform the Qiyaam Prayers during the last 10 days of Ramadan. He urged for drivers to benefit from the spiritual meanings of the holy month of Ramadan by ensuring the rights of others who share the road. He urged them not to park their vehicles haphazardly, to avoid blocking entrances and exits or other vehicles by parking directly behind them, and to follow the instructions of traffic policemen.
He also stressed the importance of following traffic laws, reducing speeds before the time of Iftar, refraining from running red lights, and from not using the phone while behind the wheel. He also advised drivers to maintain a sufficient and safe distance between vehicles and to pay attention to remain watchful to avoid any unexpected occurrences
