08 Mar Dubai Police issue over 29,500 traffic fines with the help of resident reporting and security surveillance
Dubai Police have confirmed they issued 29,539 traffic fines last year under the “We Are All Police” programme, with over 8,000 being recorded thanks to CCTV surveillance cameras.
The “We Are All Police” programme enables public members to take part in ensuring the safety and security of Dubai roads and streets and report reckless drivers and traffic violations easily via the Dubai Police smart app or calling Dubai Police’s call centre (901).
Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, said: “We don’t issue fines against individuals immediately after receiving the report, but we first verify the report, check cameras, and contact to warn violators before issuing any tickets.
“Moreover, our police officers can also report violations using the application or by calling the command centre. In that case, the fine will be issued immediately without verification.”
Brig. Al Mazrouei further warned against misusing the service, explaining that legal action will be taken against those who falsely accuse other motorists.
He called upon the public to utilise this service and join Dubai Police in ensuring the safety and security of Dubai roads and protecting the lives of road users.
