Brigadier Mohammed Saif Al Zafeen, Director of Dubai Traffic Police Department, said an ideal driver was the one who respects the law. He said accidents are caused as a result of the failure to abide by the law. Brig. Zafeen was speaking to driving test examiners at Al Fahidi Hall of the police headquarters. "We should follow objective, scientific and precise criteria when passing judgment on driving licence aspirants. What we need to do is to ensure that the person has full control over the vehicle and does not ignore safety inside and outside the car," said the official.
He said these points have to be adhered to very strictly, but added that "minor mistakes should be foregone", referring to mistakes that do not pose threat to safety in any way. He also urged examiners to have a good relation with the public, and be considerate with those who fail the test. He said examiners should explain the mistakes to them after the test was over.
A recent survey by the police-affiliated Public Opinion Centre of the Total Quality Administration showed that more than 70 per cent of people participating in the survey said driving test examiners were fair in their judgments. That finding has pleased police, but officials said more efforts were needed to better services, especially in giving early test dates.
