As part of its 'Safe Traffic Summer Campaign', Abu Dhabi Police, ADP, urged drivers to urgently check the tyres of their vehicles to ensure they are safe and undamaged. This will help in avoiding accidents during summer resulting from high temperatures.
Lt. Colonel Mohammed Salem Al Shehhi, Chief of the Traffic Control Section at the ADP Traffic and Patrols Directorate, urged drivers to use tyres that comply with specifications.
He also pointed out that the key reasons for accidents during summer include the use of old tyres, too much or too little air pressure, being overloaded and frequent use. He stressed that traffic was being monitored and the law will be applied against violators, under the framework of the strategic priority to make roads safer.
Al Shehhi noted that the ADP is proactively launching the campaign on social media and other media outlets to promote traffic safety and prevent accidents.
The police said that accidents happened because motorists were paying attention to the road and the traffic in front of them.
Failure to pay the fines will cause the vehicle to be sold in public auction, Abu Dhabi Police added.
The police pointed to the main reasons that lead to the occurrence of traffic accidents during the summer, which include the expiration of tyres, the lack or increase in air pressure in the tires, overloading and frequent use of long distances.
