As the holy month of Ramadan approaches, all Muslims tend to go to shops for preparations, and even during Ramadan people are still active either preparing for the month or rushing for Masjids to pray. Thus, it is more likely to expect more traffic accidents during the holy month.
For this reason, Colonel Saif Mohair Al Mazroui, Director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, appealed drivers and road users to abide by the laws and regulations of the traffic systems, and not to endanger their lives and put them at risk by recklessness or fast driving.
He pointed out that policemen spare no effort in permanently presenting in various locations to do their job and offer security and services for everyone in the community. He also said that Dubai Traffic Police will do its best and increase its efforts during Ramadan to provide safety and secure for everyone, and to protect the lives and properties of the society.
Colonel Saif Al Mazroui, explained that traffic jam peaks at the rush hours of early morning (at dawn) and evening (at Athan AlMaghreb ), which requires greater effort from police, pointing out that policemen will be intensified at these times.
Colonel Saif Al Mazroui said that last Ramadan, 201 accidents were recorded resulting in the death of 10 people, and the injury of 147 others, and hoped the month to pass with the least harm at everyone.
