DUBAI - As people prepare to enjoy the Eid Al Adha long holiday, the General Directorate of Traffic Police in Dubai is stepping up patrols to ensure everything runs smoothly during the holiday period.
Colonel Jumaa Salem bin Suwaidan, Acting Director of the General Directorate of Traffic at Dubai Police, said they would deploy 120 traffic police patrols across the emirate to enhance the safety of motorists and road users over the next week.
"We have instructed our traffic police patrols and wardens to step up efforts to protect people’s lives and ensure their happiness especially during this happy occasion," Col. bin Suwaidan said.
He added that the Traffic Awareness Team would conduct awareness campaigns among motorists on the precautionary measures against COVID-19.
Col. bin Suwaidan further warned motorists to be extra cautious and drive slowly when they are in residential and crowded areas. Pedestrians should be careful to cross the roads only from designated areas, he added.
