The lack of visibility due to foggy conditions is known to cause of a lot of accidents every year in the United Arab Emirates, eventually leading to fatal injuries. Yet, today’s technology can help to overcome these visibility issues by providing dynamic information to the driver about the current weather and an appropriate speed limit. This paper explores four strategies, ranging from static road signs to advanced inter-vehicular communication, to better warn the drivers and make them adapt their speed depending on the weather. To evaluate the impact of each policy, agent-based simulations are designed and performed. The results show that a dynamic communication about the weather conditions, supported by either an infrastructure-to-vehicle or a vehicle-to-vehicle protocol, can reduce the probability of occurrence of accidents.
