The US embassy in Abu Dhabi has sent an email to its citizens warning them to take care in rural and remote areas after someone was hit by a vehicle while walking in Al Bahia.
“Due to a recent report of an individual who was hit repeatedly by a vehicle and seriously injured when walking on the road in Al Bahia, a rural area of Abu Dhabi, the US embassy cautions citizens to be aware of their surroundings when walking or exercising in remote and rural areas of Abu Dhabi, especially Al Bahia.
“Some areas do not have camera surveillance and are less frequently patrolled by the police. Carry your mobile phone with you at all times and call 999 for any emergency (police, fire or ambulance).”
The embassy also reminded people to be aware of their surroundings, including finding out whether local events are taking place, and to monitor local news stations for updates.
