Ras Al Khaimah Police announced that drivers must adhere to 11 conditions while driving vehicles safely in fog and volatile weather conditions in order to avoid accidents or commit traffic violations.

She explained that if drivers do not comply with the traffic instructions and walk during foggy times without using lights, the driver will be subject to a fine of 500 dirhams and four traffic points, pointing out that in the event of driving during fog times in violation of the instructions of the concerned authority, a fine of 500 dirhams and four black points will be imposed according to Article 104 regarding traffic control rules and procedures.

She indicated that drivers should reduce the speed as much as possible by 50 kilometers per hour during fog, leave a greater distance behind other cars and calculate at least 5 seconds for a complete stop, use low lighting, and open the window slightly to better see the surrounding environment. She stated that the car must be driven in low-speed lanes, and to avoid changing the car’s path except when necessary because this puts the driver at risk, in addition to using the right edge of the road or road lines as a guide, and not using four-way signals because it poses a risk for other drivers to believe that the driver is stopped in the middle of the road . She pointed out that the four-way signals should not be used except in the event of a complete stop, stressing that the vehicle must stop on the right side of the road when there is no visibility and turn on the four-way traffic lights.
