The Abu Dhabi Police announced banning of heavy vehicles (trucks and buses transporting workers for more than 50 passengers) from traffic on roads restricted to peak hours in Abu Dhabi, as of the first day of the month of Ramadan.
Peak times are set from 8:00 am to 10:00 am and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm for trucks only.
The police explained that those measures aim to enhance traffic flow safety on the roads during the Holy Month.
The Traffic and Patrols Directorate at the Central Operations called on drivers to enhance the efforts aimed at maintaining traffic safety during the month of Ramadan by the compliance with traffic instructions, particularly speed limits, attention during driving, fastening seatbelts, non-distraction by phone while driving, and keeping a sufficient distance behind vehicles.
On the other hand, the Abu Dhabi Police have set working hours for customer service centres at the Traffic and Patrols Directorate and for the vehicle licencing service centres of the drivers and vehicles at the Central Operations during Ramadan, in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra, from 8 am to 4 pm.
In January, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee updated procedures to enter Abu Dhabi for drivers of trucks and vehicles transporting goods.
The decision was in line with precautionary measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. The procedures applied to all drivers of trucks and vehicles transporting goods, who must show a negative PCR test result received in the last seven days to be allowed entry into the emirate.
Vaccinated drivers will be offered free PCR tests every seven days.
The committee renews its call to the public to continue to cooperate and adhere to precautionary and preventive measures. Violators may be liable for legal fines and penalties.
This measure stems from the leadership’s keenness to protect lives and property and to enhance traffic safety, in line with the Ministry of Interior’s strategic goal to make roads safer.
