Urgent.. Emirates Police outlines the new reporting system for traffic accidents in Dubai
Dealing with the aftermath of a traffic accident can be stressful, but UAE motorists can report events to the appropriate authorities using a computer, an app, or a simple phone call.
Knowing what to do in any type of traffic accident, no matter how minor, can save time and lessen the impact on those involved as well as other vehicles.
If you witness a problem or are engaged in an incident on Dubai's roads, you can report it through the government's DubaiNow app.
According to officials, the service allows motorists to report minor traffic accidents without having to wait for police to arrive on the scene or going to a police station.
Motorists who record an incident on the DubaiNow app will receive a Dubai Police report via email or text message for any insurance claim.
It is still necessary to contact 999 in the event of a major disaster.
"Offering the service to report minor traffic accidents to DubaiNow app users will make it easier for Dubai motorists and road users to benefit from this exceptional service," said Major General Khalid Al Razooqi, director of Dubai Police's General Department of Artificial Intelligence.
The service provides an additional tool for reporting accidents. Motorists can still use the Dubai Police app.
The National provides instructions on how to report minor incidents in Dubai and other emirates.
How to report a minor accident in Emirates (uae)?
To begin, make sure you have your driver's licence, car registration, and insurance information with you. If you do not have these, you may be required to go to the police station.
Stay cool and relocate the vehicles to the side of the road if it is safe to do so in minor events where no one is wounded.
If the other motorist escapes the scene, record the vehicle's make, model and number plate number and notify Dubai Police.
Motorists in Dubai can report minor accidents via the Dubai Police smartphone app or DubaiNow.
On the app's homepage, select the "report traffic accident" function.
Choose the number of vehicles involved in the collision.
Scan the vehicle plate number and enter as many details as possible, such as the number plate number.
Using the app, take a picture of the vehicle's damaged area.
Choose who is to blame for the accident, including personal information such as their phone number and email address.
If the drivers cannot agree on who is at fault, they must contact Dubai Police at 999. The police will next determine who is responsible. Alternatively, all parties should report the event to the nearest police station.
The party found responsible will be fined Dh520 ($141).
In addition, select Enoc petrol stations in Dubai allow motorists to report an accident. Al Rasheed Street in Al Mizher, Al Khail Road near exit 44, Arabian Ranches, and Al Khail Road near the Al Barsha police station are among them.
