Web Reporter: Abu Dhabi, UAE
The Abu Dhabi Police have launched a new road alert system across highways in the UAE Capital. The radar-like devices have been installed along the highways to alert drivers.
Different colours flash on the system to alert drivers on the road about traffic incidents or weather conditions.
The flash alerts are powered by solar energy and batteries. They are visible from a distance of up to 200 metres during the day and night.
Here is what the colours mean:
Red and blue: Alerts drivers about a traffic accident ahead.
Yellow: Serves as a warning about adverse weather conditions like fog, dust or rain.
