Abu Dhabi police to text fog alerts to drivers
Abu Dhabi Police will soon be sending fog phone alerts to drivers to warn them about bad weather.
The initiative is part of Abu Dhabi’s recently launched National Early Warning System – a joint venture by the police and the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, which aims to limit accidents on the roads.
Police say the alerts will go directly to the public’s mobile phones, helping people understand that they need to be careful while driving.
The initiative follows last month’s crash in foggy conditions in Abu Dhabi involving more than 40 vehicles.
