Abu Dhabi traffic patrols deploy mobile radar
The Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police has equipped its patrols with the mobile radars in support of traffic officers’ efforts to maintain road safety and provide a safe environment for all road users.
On the occasion of the Arab Traffic Week, held under the theme “We Care about Your Safety”, Brigadier Khamis Ishaq Mohammed, director of the Abu Dhabi Police Traffic and Patrols Directorate, urged drivers to observe the legal speed limits; maintain a safe distance between vehicles; and not to use the phone while driving. He also urged external road users to be cautious and careful and to follow the safety instructions.
Brigadier Mohammed highlighted the traffic safety efforts exerted by traffic and civil patrols equipped with the “Al Qannas” radar to catch violators, issue fines to them and acquaint them with the violation they have committed. He also noted that excessive speeding is the leading cause of traffic accidents that result in deaths and serious injuries.
“The Traffic Week included an awareness- raising exhibition in Dalma Mall with the participation of a number of entities including the Emirates Driving Company, Emirates Transport, Abu Dhabi Education Council, Ambulance and Rescue Department, the Community Police, and the Vehicles and Drivers Licensing Department,” he said.
“The exhibition included traffic-related documentary films, brochures distribution, an educational village, and a drawing workshop. These activities aim to increase the positive role of drivers in committing to traffic laws to protect lives and property.”
