A Sharjah traffic police officer has been honoured for promptly helping a driver whose car suddenly broke down in the middle of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed street.

The cop assisted the motorist to move his car from the middle of the highway while ensuring his safety as well as that of others, and averting an accident.

Sergeant Ahmed Hassan Al Hammadi from the traffic and patrols department was felicitated by Sharjah police chief Major General Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi, for his quick action and good behaviour.

His humanitarian act came to light after the motorist thanked and praised the Sharjah Police through one of the radio stations, highlighting the role of Al Hammadi. The motorist said he contacted the police central operations room and reported that his vehicle had a sudden engine failure. Al Hammadi arrived at the site within two minutes and provided him with the much-needed assistance.

He said that the police officer prevented a possible accident from happening and then contacted the recovery car to transport the vehicle to the garage for maintenance.

Al Shamsi praised the role played by Al Hammadi, which reflected "the Sharjah Police’s keenness to provide aid and assistance to various segments of society, and deal with various emergencies as quickly as possible". He stressed that by his exceptional act, Al Hammadi has set a precedent that all police officers should emulate.
