Best News: Dubai Radars to start catching tailgaters from July 2015

Recommended Posts

One of the best news I have read this morning in Gulf news about: Radars to start catching tailgaters from July 2015.

 

Well I hope people from other emirates also read this news and start behaving well in Dubai, as majority of time I experience Nissan Patrol, Old skyline and Lexus LS 400 from northern emirate comes behind you and start flash to death with less than 1 meter distance behind your bumper. Scary indeed.

Dubai: Starting from July, Dubai radars will be able to catch tailgaters, Dubai Police have announced.

Major General Mohammad Saif Al Zafein, Assistant to the Dubai Police Chief for Operations Affairs, said the move is in order to reduce casualties from accidents caused by tailgating.

Earlier this week Dubai Police launched its annual ‘Keep a safe distance’ traffic campaign, quoting tailgating as the third-leading cause of traffic deaths.

Tailgating caused 26 deaths in 2014, and 11 deaths between January and May this year. Also in 2014, Dubai Traffic Police issued 69,964 fines for people not leaving a safe distance between vehicles on Dubai roads and in 2015, 19,975 fines were issued in the first four months.

Maj Gen Al Zafein said the radar has the latest technology that can detect tailgating violations accurately, regardless of the speed of the vehicle.

The radar takes photos of the front and rear of the vehicle and can detect the violation in any lane.

The photos will help make sure the violation is legitimate and can be accessed if the driver contests the fine.

The fine for tailgating is Dh400 and four black points.

That's a nice news, really. However what I read in newspaper: 5 meter distance is too less for 80 kmph speed, as per rule book it should be around 20 meters and at 120 kmph speed should be 30 meters gap. Whatever it is, it's a good news and good starting.

My driving instructor told me long back a simple way to maintain safe distance is drive as close or as far from vehicle in front until you see their rear tires touching the ground. Now that logic was great in Nissan Sunny (learner's vehicle) and fit well in sedan and sports car, but not applicable for 4WD .

 

So 4WD driver need to install a laser pointing measure tool in their car to check 5 meters...... :-P  :-P  :mrgreen:

      Dubai Police Fines
      Traffic Fines
      Really great news for Dubai residents who have Dubai Police Traffic Fines can avail up to 100% discount as per year of tolerance initiative from Dubai Police.
      In a nutshell:
      Be a good driver for 3 months = 25% discount Be a good driver for 6 months = 50% discount  Be a good driver for 9 months = 75% discount Be a good driver for 1 year = 100% discount Be a good driver means you should follow traffic rules throughout the year and don't get Dubai Police Fines.
      I called the Dubai Police for more clarity:
      If you have previous traffic fines from last year, they are also applicable in this "Settle your traffic fines" initiative but the time will start from today - 6 Feb 2019. So if from today till next 3 months you follow traffic rules and don't get any traffic fines, then last year fine will be discounted by 25%, for 6 months = 50% and so on.
        If you are renewing your car next month or so, you can still renew the car without paying Dubai Police Fines. You need to go to the traffic department - they have options to renew your car without paying any traffic fines from Dubai police.

      The Dubai Police already has some luxury sports cars in its fleets such as the Lamborghini Aventador, Bentley Continental GT, McLaren, Bugatti Veyron, and the Mercedes G Wagen. Now, the Chevrolet Bolt EV has been added as well.
      One of the reasons to add an electric vehicle to the Dubai Police fleet is Dubai Green Mobility initiative through which the UAE aims to increase awareness about conservation and promote the use of electric cars. A total of 8 Chevrolet Bolt EVs have been added to the fleet and they will soon be seen patrolling on the streets of Dubai.
      The President and Managing Director of General Motors Africa and the Middle East, John Roth mentioned that the company is proud to support the Dubai’s Green Mobility Initiative.
      Do you agree that using electric vehicles in government fleets will prove to be beneficial? Do share your opinion with us regarding the benefits of electric and hybrid vehicles.

      Following the rise of robberies in Dubai’s industrial areas, the police have issued a warning stay alert against car thefts. The official announcement was made on Dubai Police Twitter account warning the drivers to not leave their vehicles unattended if the engine is running.
      Just a week earlier, Dubai police arrested four men who were caught stealing car batteries. According to the Al Bayan report, the gang specifically targeted two locations including Jebel Ali and Qusais industrial areas.
      On inspection, the thieves confessed to their crime and revealed that they sell the car batteries at a half price to make money.
      Have you been a victim to such a situation before? What action do you suggest the Dubai Police should take to prevent thieves from stealing cars and other equipment?

      Road accidents are increasing every day in Dubai and this leads to traffic congestion in the whole city. To tackle this problem, RTA and the Dubai Police have collaborated to introduce a new Traffic Incidents Management (TIM) system.
      The Traffic Incident Management system was launched officially on 16th September 2018 and was inaugurated by key figures of both Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Dubai Police. Special breakdown vehicles were also seen to be deployed at different locations on the Mohammad Bin Zayed Road. 
      Special breakdown response vehicles will be positioned every 30 kilometers on the national expressway road which is approximately 70 kilometers long and connects Dubai with Abu Dhabi as well as Sharjah. These vehicles will be well equipped with latest technologies and communication devices to clear up the accident site quickly and assist the drivers to a safe place. 
      The TIM system is expected to reduce traffic delays by up to 35 percent by removing the vehicles involved in an accident and restoring the traffic flow ASAP.
      This effort by RTA and Dubai Police deserves an applaud as it will definitely improve the traffic situation in the city and ensure the safety of every driver. Do share your opinion about this new initiative and tell us how beneficial it will be for UAE drivers.

      As I got one of my car repainted recently, there was big hassle to get the Dubai Police permission paper for repainting. After wasting two days in traffic hours coz of wrong information from official and unofficial channels, I like to list all of them below to help everyone here:
      You can't get that permission paper from any Dubai Police Station (Don't waste time) You can't get that permission paper from Dubai Police Headquarters (next to Al Mulla Plaza) You only get this permission from Dubai Police vehicle confiscated yard, next to Tasjeel Qusais, I think it's a CID department GPS Coordinate for this place: https://goo.gl/maps/t8hv6s7f9Rv (No pics allowed) Their timing is from 7 am to 1 pm only It cost 120 dhs and not 50 dhs You don't need paper if keeping same color and getting car painted in Dubai You do need paper even if keeping same color but getting car painted in Sharjah (that was my case) You do need paper if you change color and getting car painted in any emirates
