Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Dubai has a great road system and its continually expanding to accommodate the ever growing volume of traffic. As roads can get congested you can always opt for a calmer route. For example making use of Beach Road and Al Wasl Road to avoid the fast and furious driving that often takes places on the SZR. If heading in the direction of Abu Dhabi, wait until the morning truck traffic has cleared before driving on Al Khalil Road and Emirates Road. The same applies for both roads regarding the evening traffic towards Sharjah. The Dubai Bypass Road is another good option for those less experienced driving in Dubai. Furthermore, be aware that some confusion about road names might ensue due to slight differences in transliterated spellings and that the on-going construction may make finding your destination more of a challenge than planned.

Ahmed A.
Very good this time. Thanks to all.
The guy from the counter recommended a useless prepaid fuel which basically is a loss for the customer since you can just refill the needed amount rather than pay for the full tank from the beginning. Other than that, the rate was superb, car was clear, Sribeen has been a huge help when I returned the car at the end of my trip.
