Dubai Police launches alert system for road closures, accidents


Dubai Police have made it a lot easier for people to stay informed about temporary street closures and major traffic accidents in the emirate.

The authority has added a new feature on its smart mobile application, which notifies users about issues on the roads.

Alerts will be sent via the app so that motorists can take alternative routes and avoid congestion.

The latest initiative is expected to improve overall traffic management and increase customer satisfaction, especially during national holidays and special occasions. 

"Providing the community with smart solutions reflects Dubai Police’s keenness to achieve the strategic objectives of the government to transform Dubai into a smart city," said Brigadier Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, Director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police.
