Police have now launched a campaign that is titled, “Give Your Comment”. Through this campaign, the police intend to imply harsher penalties against traffic violators.
Colonel Mohamed Ali Al Muhairi, director of the Security Media Department, said that, “The campaign’s new approach aims to enhance communication between the police and the public.”

There have been hundreds of comments that the Abu Dhabi Police has already received from concerned residents from the social networking sites. Many of them have agreed for a stricter action to those motorists who violate the traffic rules and pose as a threat to all the other drivers on the road.

They also had suggested that the safe drivers who did adhere to the traffic rules to be permitted to having a dashcam on the dashboard of their vehicles in order to record such accidents that take place.
