Dubai Police has awarded a new car to an Emirati driver as part of an initiative to highlight good drivers in the emirate, it was reported.
Emirati national Saif Al Sweedi was highlighted for his impeccable driving record and adherence to the rules of the road.
The driver was abroad when Dubai Police delivered the brand new car to his home, so it was collected by his family, according to a report by the Khaleej Times newspaper.
“We encourage all the motorists to obey the traffic rules. We have a system in place to honour good drivers and reward them with prizes,” Major-General Mohammed Saif Al Zafin, assistant commander-in-chief for operations at Dubai Police, was quoted as saying. He added that the prize was awarded as part of the force’s ‘white points system’.
