The bicycle patrols will inspect potentially crowded shops and buildings in targeted areas while responding quickly to any complaints received.

A cycling initiative has been rolled out in Abu Dhabi to enable inspectors monitor commercial premises quickly and easily to ensure that owners of outlets adhere to the Covid-19 precautionary measures.

The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) on Tuesday said it launched the bicycle patrol initiative with the aim to enhance awareness of the preventive measures and accelerate monitoring operations to help curb the spread of Covid-19.


According to authorities, the bicycle patrols will inspect potentially crowded shops and buildings in targeted areas while responding quickly to any complaints received.

This method will also help inspectors to guide shoppers on social distancing measures and avoid crowds.

Ahmed Taresh Al Qubaisi, head of control and inspection section at ADDED said: "We have launched the cycling initiative to help spread awareness measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 by having inspectors at and in front of all crowded outlets."

"This initiative will help us rapidly respond to and manage all incoming reports to monitor in a timely manner any violations committed by store owners and to ensure that social distancing is being observed in crowded places."

The initiative will be implemented during working hours during morning time and evening shifts.
