By rewarding good drivers, authorities across the country hope to set an example for other motorists
Motorists in Umm Al Quwain were taken aback when police signaled them to pull over. Instead of providing pink, green or white slips, the Umm Al Quwain Police Traffic and Patrol Unit surprised drivers by issuing them certificates for following the traffic rules.
Patrol police stopped the driver and issued them a law-abiding driver’s license. Under the “You Are the Road Star” initiative, the police observed the drivers’ behavior and issued them certificates and gift bags.
This is not the first time such an initiative has been taken by the transport sector; similar campaigns have been carried out by police forces across the UAE. Authorities hope that by rewarding good drivers, they will set an example for other motorists.
In March 2023, Abu Dhabi Police conducted a similar investigation Campaign titled “Your Life Is Safe”. The Happiness Patrol recognizes drivers who strictly abide by the rules and do not commit any traffic violations. Dubai Police have also carried out similar campaigns in previous years.
In 2022, the Abu Dhabi police again gave Gifts to 51 motorists They are committed to observing the traffic rules and regulations to celebrate UAE National Day.
