The Federal Transport Authority, FTA, has reminded motorists to avoid overloading vehicles and speeding which may lead to accidents.

In a tweet, FTA said: “Not following the scheduled load and not reducing speed when turning can make you lose control of the vehicle due to overloading. Therefore, #FTA recommends that you abide by the safety rules at all times. Avoid overloading.”

The agency also urged drivers to follow safety rules while loading their vehicles.

Violators will be fined up to Dh500 with 4 black points for overloading in light vehicles.
