The Dubai Police Department along with its municipality will provide fog-related information to the drivers through SMS alerts.

A network covering the whole emirate of Dubai for monitoring the status of fog and low visibility will be launched by the end of July 2009.

The monitored data will be instantly displayed to road users through traffic signs and SMSes by the operations room at the police department.

The tides and weather forecast information is also provided to the drivers in order to uphold traffic safety.

The collected data will be processed to formulate the models required to predict the low level of visibility due to fog or sand storms and it aims at providing clear vision for drivers to ensure safety on the roads.
