Drive-thru police stations are a thing, and they're in Dubai!
Drivers who are involved in minor accidents can now speed up the “green and red slip” process with Dubai Police’s brand new drive thru police station!
The new service that has been set up at Rashidiya Police stations will now cut the insurance details process down to just 3 minutes. When drivers get into an accident, they need a certain slip from the police to make a claim from the drivers insurance company, and to get the car fixed.
The new service will save drivers involved in a minor accident, to not have to wait at the side of the road for 30 minutes, for a patrol car to come to the scene of the accident.
Brigadier Saeed Hamad bin Sulaiman, director of Rashidiya Police Station, said “The service is just for minor accidents without casualties,” he said. “You just need to come to the police station and drive your car through a special cabin to get the police report within three minutes without stepping out of the vehicle. We want people to be happy and reduce the crowds in our police station.”
A policeman will take pictures of the vehicle and check the car over for damages at the Drive Thru, and then a report will be sent to you by emails or MMS.
The service was launched on November 1st and is open 24 hours a day. Approximately 103 people have already used the new service.
