819 MOBIKES SEIZED:  A Sharjah-based traffic campaign has resulted in the seizure of 394 violating motorcycles and 425 bicyles in its first week of operation, Colonel Mohammed Alai Al Naqbi, Director of Traffic and Patrol at Sharjah Police has informed.

The campaign which was launched by Sharjah Police, Sharjah City Municipality and Bee’ah aims at protecting lives and property and preventing traffic accidents caused by reckless motorcycles and bicycles use on Sharjah’s main and side roads. 

Al Naqbi has said that the ongoing campaign will continue to detect violators, particularly the riders of motorcycles and bicycles in industrial areas who deliberately ride dangerously. They ride on the opposite side and cross roads in a hazardous way without paying any attention to the risks involved.

Al Naqbi said that some riders also tend to overload their motorcycles and bicycles and cause them to lose balance.

Sometimes they cause major accidents, casualties and huge losses, not to mention the noise caused by such motorcycles and bicycles to the people living in all residential areas.

Al Naqbi has called on riders to use roadworthy motorcycles and bicycles with valid licences. He has also urged them to take adequate safety measures to protect themselves by wearing helmets and phosphorus jackets.
