The Dubai Police on Monday took to social media to remind motorists that they will be hearing alerts on their car radios when emergency vehicles are approaching.
In a Twitter post, the Dubai Police showed how the technology works. Cars blocking the emergency vehicle will be asked to give away via a warning message. The alert will say: "Attention, emergency vehicle approaching! Kindly give way."
A similar was implemented by Sharjah earlier this year. The innovative device was introduced in June according to the directives of Major-General Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi, Commander-in-Chief of the Sharjah Police. He added that it would ensure rapid response to emergencies and help the authorities reach their destinations at the soonest possible time.
