Emirates Transport drivers attended a safety awareness lecture as part of a community initiative that targets heavy vehicle drivers in the public and private sectors.

The Abu Dhabi Police Traffic and Patrols Directorate aims to raise the level of driver safety awareness.

The main causes of accidents are stopping in dedicated parking zones, not ensuring the path is clear before entering a road, sudden swerving, failure to leave sufficient distance between vehicles, excessive speeding, failure to drive within the designated lanes, neglect and lack of attention while driving, said Capt Hamdan bin Thiban.

He gave safety tips for driving in fog, explained the risks of misusing hazard lights while driving, and called on drivers to adhere to traffic laws and speed limits.
