After police intervened in a number of cases, rescuing residents from the situation.

Abu Dhabi Police has defined a set of guidelines for motorists to follow if the car's cruise control fails.

This just a few†days after the police heroically rescued a driver from what could have been a deadly road accident, after the brakes of his four-by-four vehicle suddenly stopped working at 130kmph on a highway.

On its Instagram official account, the police said that most importantly motorists should keep calm, make sure their seat-belt is on, put on the hazard lights, and call 999 to describe the case in detail.

Nearly two months ago, a woman was also stuck in the same situation in Umm Al Quwain.

Abu Dhabi Police urged motorists who may face this problem to do the following:†

1. Put the gear on (N) then switch off the engine using the key if it's an old model car.

2. For†more modern models, motorists should push and suppress the start button for a†long time until the engine turns off.

3. If that fails, motorists should put the gear on (N) and push on the brakes firmly and steadily until the car eventually stops.

4. If the previous method also fails, they should slowly pull up the handbrake while firmly holding the steering wheel.

5. If all methods fail, motorists must change the gear setting between (N) and (D) repeatedly.

6. If any of the previous methods work before a patrol car reaches, the police said that a motorist should stop the car off the road and make sure he/ she is safe and wait for the arrival of the concerned units.
