Avoid Abu Dhabi roads during these times


DUBAI – If you’re driving in Abu Dhabi this Ramadan, take note of new timings for trucks and avoid the peak hour rush hours.

With working hours for government employees changed from 9am to 2pm during the holy month, the Abu Dhabi Police said it will change the timings on a truck ban to reduce traffic congestion.

Trucks and lorries are banned from plying Abu Dhabi roads from 8am to 10am and from 2pm until 4pm. However, they will be plying the roads from 4:01pm until 7:59am the next day.

Bus drivers carrying more than 50 passengers are also banned from plying roads from 8am until 10am, but are free to do so from 10:01am until 7:59am the next day.

Violators will be fined Dh1,000 and given four black points in their traffic file. GAD/Expat Media
