Congestion is plaguing roads across the country today.

Commuters have reported tailbacks on Al Maryah Island near the Four Seasons Hotel. The Waze traffic app map shows cars moving at 16 km/hr.

In Dubai, cars are crawling at 8 km/hr on Al Hudob Street, and at 5 km/hr near The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort.

33 Street, near the Al Karama Metro Station, also has its share of extremely slow traffic. A similar situation is found on D92-Al Khaleej Road.

Sharjah roads are, as usual, the most congested across the country.

E11-Al Ittihad street, Al Taawun Street, and S120-University City road are best avoided.
