According to the Ministry of Interior's (MOI) records, 22 accidents caused by tyre explosions were reported in the UAE last year. Out of these, 13 occurred in Abu Dhabi, 4 in Dubai, 1 each in Sharjah and Fujairah, and 3 in Ras Al Khaimah. With summer temperatures rising, the Abu Dhabi Police have advised drivers to regularly check their tyres. The risk of tyre blowouts is heightened during hot weather, emphasizing the importance of tyre maintenance, as highlighted in their recent road safety campaign. In line with the 'safe summer' and 'accident-free summer' initiatives, drivers are encouraged to periodically inspect their vehicles for any signs of damage or cracks that could result in tyre blowouts and traffic accidents. Speeding increases the likelihood of a tyre burst, but other factors include tyre age, heat pressure, overloading, damaged tyres, tyre quality, and improper inflation. Driving with damaged or worn-out tyres is subject to a Dh500 fine, 4 black points, and a one-week vehicle impoundment, as per Article 82 of the Federal Traffic Law. Authorities have intensified traffic checks to apprehend offenders and raise awareness about the risks of driving with poor tyres. MOI records indicate that a total of 18,145 violations were issued for driving with unfit tyres, with 8,984 in Abu Dhabi, 2,413 in Dubai, 2,093 in Sharjah, 1,572 in Ajman, 182 in Umm Al-Quwain, 2,260 in Ras Al Khaimah, and 641 in Fujairah.
