Abu Dhabi Police has a launched a new initiative to allow emergency vehicles better access on the city’s roads.
A dedicated lane for all emergency vehicles has been launched on King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street.
The right hand lane is only to be used by emergency vehicles, and any drivers caught using the lane face a fine of Dhs400.
The dedicated lane will allow emergency services better transport links around the city and will speed up response times for police, the fire service and ambulances.
All road users using Abu Dhabi’s road network also have less than 30 days to register for the road tolls and add credit to their account ahead of the launch of December 1.
