Authorities Urge Vacationers To Follow Safety Tips For Road Trips

Mayar Ibrahim

Summer vacation is just around the corner, and authorities are urging vacationers to follow these safety tips. If you’re planning a road trip in the UAE then these tips are for you!

3. Avoid carrying excess baggage

Excess baggage can lead to wearing out and over-heating tyres faster. This could cause an imbalance in the car or loss of control on the road due to a flat tyre. So, police officials from the northern emirates have urged travellers against it.

2. Inspect your car thoroughly

Make sure that all your tyres are valid and up to date. Ensure all your lights are functional such as side lights, headlights and brake lights. Finally, verify that your engine, brakes and windshield wipers are all operational.

1. Adhere to road safety rules

You know the drill! Do not use your phone while driving, keep your seatbelt on, and make sure the little ones are buckled up in the backseat.

Authorities urge road trippers to be cautious on the road in extreme weather conditions like fog, sandstorm or rain. Any failure to adhere to these tips and rules will result in a AED2,000 fine and 6 black points on your license. So stay safe and follow these tips to the T!
