The UAE is quickly becoming the smartest country in the world, and the Traffic and Patrol Directorate at Abu Dhabu Police General Headquarters have just made the UAE smarter! 

Yesterday Abu Dhabi Police launched a new smart service that allows it's staff to issue traffic violations through their smartphone! 

The whole process is designed to make the process quicker, more accurate and effective. 

Brigadier Engineer Hussein Ahmed Al Harithi, Director General of Central Operations at Abu Dhabi Police said “These services would allow officers to issue traffic violation tickets in the presence of the offenders or in absentia; digitally or based on a still photos. They also include special features such as running background checks about drivers and inquiring about the vehicles simply by logging in the data pertaining to the vehicle and then sending violations to the main database."

The new service is similar to the "We Are All Police" initiative, rolled out on the new DubaiNow app, that allows residents and citizens in the UAE to report traffic violations through their smartphone. 

Brigadier Harithi also added about the new service "It also provides a background check feature for wanted drivers by displaying a warning message on the screen when traffic officers fill in the drivers’ license number. Moreover, it allows traffic officers to issue traffic violation tickets that indicate accurate details about the location using the Global Positioning System (GPS).”
