The variable UID is not defined to be automatically set by the shell in
POSIX; having it set is a bash extension.  dash doesn't set it
automatically for you.

You'll have to set it yourself:

  UID=$(id -u)

Also you should quote variable references, in general:

  if [ 0 -eq "$UID" ]

Be sure that if your scripts rely on bash-isms you start them with
#!/bin/bash and if you don't want them to rely on bash-isms, you start
them with #!/bin/sh.
