App Helps Dubai Police Catch Road Rule Breakers
(22 November 2015)


Members of the public have helped snare nearly 4,000 traffic violators since the introduction of a new app that encourages them to send videos or photos of the antics of dodgy drivers to the police.

Colonel Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, the director of the Dubai Traffic Police Department, warmly welcomed the news that in the first 10 months of this year some 3,748 fines were issued through the service.

And he wants even more.  He said: “I call on the public to report violations and violators through our programme ‘We Are All Police’.”

The police, however, have a strict set of regulations of what can be recorded.

“Photos are not allowed to be taken if a driver or passenger is in the violating car,” said the Dubai Police traffic director.

This means that the majority of the fines issued are of vehicles which either have parked illegally, obstructed traffic or been left in disabled parking spaces.

People are also not allowed to take photos while driving behind the wheel themselves.  Only violations committed in Dubai will be reviewed by the emirate’s police force.

“It is important to understand that non-compliance by these regulations could result in legal liability,” said Al Mazroui.

The service ‘We Are All Police’ was first launched in 2001 to allow frustrated motorists to report traffic offenders by calling a toll free number and registering their complaints.

However, last year, Dubai Police extended the service by allowing people to send videos and photos through the app.

“The aim is to involve the public in road safety and in controlling the traffic,” Al Mazroui said.
