Police in the UAE emirates of Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman are giving motorists “another chance” rather than hefty fines during the Eid holiday, it has been announced.
In RAK, police officers will issue special traffic tickets, which carry a safety message rather than a penalty as part of the ‘we give you another chance’ initiative.
In Ajman, 40 police patrols will be deployed to congratulate motorists on Eid instead of imposing fines.
Neither the Ajman nor RAK police forces specified whether any traffic offences would not be included in the campaigns.
Lieutenant Colonel Saif Al Falasi, the director of the Ajman Police’s traffic and patrol department, urged drivers to drive carefully and within the speed limit, as well as ensure a safe distance between vehicles.
Eid is expected to begin on Tuesday or Wednesday.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
