More police traffic patrols over Eid Al Adha holidays
ABU DHABI // The Ministry of Interior has increased traffic patrols to ensure drivers are complying with the law and traffic is flowing smoothly during the Eid Al Adha holidays.
Brigadier Ghaith Hassan Al Zaabi, director general of the Traffic Coordination Department at the ministry, urged motorists to abide by traffic police’s instructions and to drive carefully, especially near malls and markets.
He also urged motorists to leave sufficient safe distance between vehicles to avoid obstructing traffic by parking randomly or inappropriately in public parking spaces, avoid using parking spaces dedicated for people with disabilities, or parking spaces allocated for Civil Defense and ambulance vehicles, so as not to impede their work in emergency cases.
The ministry also called upon motorists to follow legal speed limits on roads in order to avoid traffic accidents during Eid al-Adha holidays, reported state news agency Wam.
