Diabetics warned not to drive when symptoms attack
Motorists are being warned not to drive when they experience symptoms of diabetes, such as drowsiness and blurred vision.
The Abu Dhabi Traffic Department says a sudden increase or drop in blood sugar may cause serious traffic accidents.
They add that those who find themselves in this situation should stop on the road’s hard shoulder and put their hazard lights on.
A number of awareness activities have been organised in the capital on Tuesday, on the occasion of World Diabetes Day.
