He caused an accident, did his job properly, some may say, but how many of us do that when no one is watching and easier to ignore it? reporting it could also put a scratch in one's file in the HR? then again will this create a feeling that doing the right thing should always be rewarded? just saying.

These are the values and the standard of training imparted by Dubai Police - without doubt one of the best Police Forces in the world. I am proud to be protected by them for the last 25 years.
