School buses ordered to stop driving during fog

  • Dubai News

Aimed at avoiding major to minor accidents, the Abu Dhabi Police are attempting to implement a new traffic plan to ensure the safe transportation of students during the thick fog that can be expected over the coming days.



The initiative is a part of the comprehensive efforts of the emirate’s Joint Traffic Safety Committee, which has provided with several ‘smart’ ideas to control traffic and avoid accidents.

Brigadier Mohammed Dahi Al Humairi, Director of Abu Dhabi Traffic Department, explained that it is important to completely stop the drive during fog, and to wait by secure places off road, until the surrounding is perfectly visible and cleared off the fog.

During a lecture organised by the department which was attended by approximately 200 school bus drivers, Al Humairi stressed on the importance of school bus drivers abiding by traffic rules ensuring students’ safety, especially during fog.

Al-Humairi called on drivers to strictly stick to the precautionary instructions listed out by the ‘Abu Dhabi Police intelligent system’.



The list provides information and guidance on traffic conditions, notifies when and where to reduce speed, warns to take caution during emergencies, warns to stop driving until the fog is cleared off, and so on.
