If you have ever been flashed by a mobile radar before exceeding the road’s speed limit, do not panic, because Dubai Police have implemented friendly-radars to tell you to slow down, Gulf News reports citing a senior police officer.
According to the report, Major-General Mohammad Saif Al Zafein, Head of the Federal Traffic Council and Assistant to the Dubai Police Chief for Operations Affairs confirmed that up to 500 of those radars are in place across Dubai to only alert drivers that they are about to exceed the road speed limit without issuing them any traffic fines.
Unlike conventional radars like Al Burj, the mobile radars will not issue traffic fines.
“Many people complain that they have been flashed while driving by mobile radars, even though they are below the maximum speed limit, not knowing that Dubai Traffic Police have launched these friendly-radars to let them know that they should slow down on the road,” Al Zafein told an Arabic daily.
Spread across different locations in Dubai, the mobile radars, he added, should not bother motorists who follow the rules, “even they were situated every two metres.”
