Heavy trucks will not be allowed to enter Abu Dhabi city during rush hours in Ramadan, the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police announced yesterday.
Trucks will be prevented from entering the city between 7:30 am and 9:30 am and from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm, to ensure a smooth traffic flow.
Brigadier Engineer Hussein Ahmed Al Harthi, director of the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police also warned transport firms about the importance of using good tires, abiding by the designated load capacity, and ensuring that their truck loads are properly secure.
He also stressed that traffic control will be intensified on trucks, with reminded drivers of the harsh measures in place against reckless overtaking: “Sudden and reckless overtaking is a serious offence punishable by a Dh 10,000 fine and the withdrawal of the driving license for a period of three months,” said Al Harthi.
Ramadan is expected to commence on either the 8th or 9th of July this year.
