Traffic was generally quiet across the UAE this morning, except in a few problem spots in Dubai and Sharjah.

There were tailbacks outside Dubai Mall on Financial Centre Street, as well as outside Karama Centre on Kuwait Street. It was slow going on Al Ittihad Street near Dubai International Airport.

There were delays on a small section of Damascus Street near Al Qusais Industrial area 1, and there were tailbacks for a large stretch of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road past National Paints and running all the way to Dubai International Airport.

The roads were mostly quiet in the capital.
