July 17, 2017

Dubai Police rolls out a new feature to help stuck drivers.

Ever had some car block your way as your coming out of your parking space? Dubai Police knows the frustration, which is why it is launching a new service that will let drivers of these vehicles be notified through SMS that their vehicle is blocking yours.

The SMS will give you time to remove your car out of the way, else you risk getting a 500 AED fine. The new rules was implemented at the start of the month.

“Anyone who has the Dubai Police app can go to the service and enter the plate number of the vehicle that is blocking the way and in minutes police will notify vehicle owner via SMS asking him to remove his car,” Lieutenant-Colonel Engineer Hussain Ahmad Bin Gulaitha, Deputy Director of the Smart Services Department at Dubai Police said.

The service will be part of the Dubai Police app that is available for free on iOS and Android devices.
