The usual suspects were clogged with traffic on the UAE's roads on Monday, with commuters facing delays on the major arteries into Dubai from Sharjah.

A crash close to Ansar Mall on the E11 was delaying motorists heading into Dubai, while on the 311, tailbacks started close to the National Paints roundabout all the way down to Dubai airport.

In Abu Dhabi meanwhile, it was busy on the E22 heading into the city close to the Maqta Bridge, while motorists also faced heavy going on Salam Street heading out of the city.

All other roads were relatively clear for commuters as of Monday morning.
