UAE motorists advised not to leave sanitizers, a flammable material, inside their cars


- Advertisment -

The Civil Defense Department in Abu Dhabi has advised residents not to leave hand sanitizers, a flammable material, inside their cars to avoid car fires. 

“Four things that cause fires during hot temperatures include lack of periodic maintenance, electrical and technical faults, leaving flammable materials like hand sanitizers, perfumes and lighters inside parked cars and oil leakages on the can engine,” the statement from the civil defense said. 

Motorists are also reminded to secure a fire extinguisher within their vehicle as an emergency measure for their safety when they drive.
