Minor accidents that took place during the holidays were a result of high speed, not paying attention on roads or because of not leaving a safe space between vehicles.

The calls were categorised into reporting criminal activities, traffic accidents, emergencies and non-emergencies and all were accordingly transferred to the concerned police teams.

Police teams professionally handled all received reports in a record time, and doubled their efforts to ensure safety of individuals.

Moreover, Sharjah Police extensively dispatched patrols to various locations of the emirate, including internal and external roads, to coordinate heavy traffic due to large crowds at public parks.

Sharjah Police also urged road users to adhere to traffic rules and maintain the speed limit in order to ensure their safety and the safety of others and prevent accidents.
