Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, Director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, urged the youth to commit to driving safely and refrain from committing serious traffic offences that endanger their lives and the lives of others.
Mazrouei, who urged parents to pay more attention and closely monitor their youths’ driving behaviour, confirmed that serious traffic offences are not tolerated and are punishable by impoundment and fines reaching up to 50,000 dirhams.
Vehicles seized for reckless driving, stunts in Dubai
Al Al Mazrouei mentioned that traffic patrols had apprehended five vehicles after midnight last Wednesday. “The drivers were causing chaos, performing stunts, making noise, and disturbing residents in the Nad Al Sheba and Al Meydan Street areas.”
“Their reckless driving and loud vehicles not only caused nuisance but also endangered the lives of road users,” he said.
Al Mazrouei added that the impoundment of offending vehicles varies in duration, in addition to financial penalties as per the federal traffic law.
He warned that these wrongful practices were previously highlighted, emphasising strict enforcement against such traffic violations to maintain safety and security on the emirate’s roads.
Al Mazrouei warned against causing chaos and disturbance on roads, clarifying that the law punishes such acts with imprisonment, vehicle impoundment, and legal action. He confirmed Dubai Police’s determination to ditter such dangerous acts.
Al Mazrouei appealed to the community to report traffic violations and dangerous behaviours through the “Police Eye” service on the Dubai Police app or call the “We Are All Police” service at 901, wishing all road users safety and security.
