Sharjah Police help you to knock off some traffic black points
Tailor-made training programme launched for Sharjah motorists.
The Sharjah Police have introduced a programme that gives motorists the opportunity to reduce the number of black points they have on their driving licences.
To reduce black points, errant motorists will need to undergo theory and simulator lessons, said a top police officer.
Motorists can take the programme once a year to knock off eight black points.
The police will check the details of violators in the traffic system and contact them. After reviewing the offences committed, a driver is referred to a social worker. The social worker then assesses the driver's file and refers him/her to a driving institute for a tailor-made rehabilitation programme. The programme will retrain the driver on the basis of the offences committed.
Offences include minor ones such as using mobile phones while driving or failure to put on seat belts; and major ones like jumping traffic red lights and driving recklessly.
Heavy truck drivers involved in major offences, including flip-over accidents, red light violations and dangerous overtaking, can also make use of the programme.
On passing the two-day programme, motorists can get their suspended licences back.
"The programme offers classes that will help motorists reform their driving attitude, develop their skills and reduce the number of black points they have," said a senior police officer. The officer said the programme was introduced in line with instructions issued by Brigadier Saif Al Zari, Commander-in-Chief of the Sharjah Police.
