Incident Overview Dubai Police recently impounded an SUV and a quad bike for performing stunts at a family camping zone in Al Ruwayyah. This follows a recent trend where young motorists engage in dangerous driving for thrills and social media attention. Last week, five vehicles were seized under similar circumstances. The impounded vehicles will only be released after paying a hefty fee of up to Dh50,000.
Dubai Police’s Stance on Road Safety Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, the director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, has emphasized that reckless driving and loud vehicles are serious nuisances and pose a threat to road users’ safety. To curb such behaviors, Dubai Police have enforced stricter fines and penalties for traffic offenses, including a Dh100,000 penalty for vehicles involved in illegal road races.
Legal Amendments for Road Safety Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, assistant commander-in-chief for operations at Dubai Police, noted that amendments have been made to traffic laws in Dubai to promote road safety and protect lives. These legal changes specifically target reckless drivers, indicating the authorities’ commitment to preserving safety on roads.
This action by Dubai Police is a part of a broader initiative to ensure road safety and discourage dangerous driving behaviors among young motorists in the city.
