Abu Dhabi tells old cabs to get off the road

The Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi has told the old white-and-yellow taxis to clear the emirate’s roads to give way to more than 8,000 new silver cabs, warning that offenders could be jailed and heavily fined. TransAD, a DoT affiliate which manages six new taxi firms, said a deadline for the old cabs ended on December 31 and drivers of these cars found operating on the road would be jailed one months and fined Dh5,000.

Warning signs ‘could have averted’ pile-up

Abu Dhabi Traffic Police are urging the Department of Transport (DoT) to install illuminated message boards to alert drivers about road and weather conditions as soon as possible, following the 127-car pile-up on Saturday. Traffic officials said such signs could have prevented the chain of accidents that resulted in one death and at least 60 injuries near Al Samha on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai motorway.
