Dubai Police Confirm 250 Road Accidents On The First Day Of Ramadan

Residents urged to drive safely


Not one, not two, but 250 road accidents were reported on the first day of Ramadan in Dubai. Lt Col Khazraj Al Khazraji, deputy director of the Command and Control Room at Dubai Police’s Operations Department, also stated that 'reckless driving, speeding and not leaving a safe distance between vehicles' were some of the causes of the accidents. 

Motorists need to ensure their path is clear when driving, especially in residential areas or those areas where pedestrians tend to cross the road.

Residents have been asked to call 901 for non-urgent issues and 999 ONLY in cases of emergencies.
