The Dubai Police has confiscated 33 vehicles in different areas in the emirate for committing serious traffic violations, including drifting and racing in unauthorized places and driving recklessly in a way that poses a danger to themselves and others.

Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, said the traffic crackdown on unruly drivers was launched in response to reports they had received from residents on some reckless drivers committing severe traffic violations and driving in the opposite direction of traffic in different roads, including Jebel Ali - Lehbab Road, Jumeirah Road, and First Al Khail road.

"Some motorists are ignorant of the deadly consequences of drifting and racing in unauthorized places." "Losing control of vehicles will result in serious injuries and increase the mortality rate." "Traffic Patrols are instructed to take a zero-tolerance approach to high-speed drivers taking part in illegal street races," Maj. Gen. Al Mazroui indicated.

He called on motorists to abide by traffic laws, pointing out that there are designated places for car drifters where these stunts can be performed.

Al Mazroui also urged the public to report violations, reckless behaviours, and traffic violations to the police via the 'We Are All Police' programme via the Dubai Police app or by calling Dubai Police call centre 901.
