Tailgating causes pile-up in Doha and Gharrafa

A view of the pile-up on D Ring Road in Doha.

The reckless practice of tailgating contributed to at least a pile-up each in Doha and Gharrafa. There were no casualties, sources said.

Four vehicles – including two SUVs, a sedan and a passenger van – were involved in the pile-up on D Ring Road, almost opposite Lulu Hypermarket, around 6.45am.

Since offices open only at 9am during the holy month of Ramadan, the pile-up on D-Ring Road, which otherwise is a very busy thoroughfare, did not cause any major traffic congestion.

The pile-up at Gharrafa, which happened around 2.30pm, involved at least three vehicles, according to an eyewitness.

Though the Traffic Department officials have advised motorists on many occasions to desist from tailgating, the dangerous practice continues unabated on Qatar’s roads.
