Around 3,000 accidents were reported during Ramadan in Sharjah this year, a 60 per cent decrease compared to last year, according to Rafid Automotive Solutions.
The decline in accident cases is a result of the commitment by members of society to stay at home in compliance with the Covid-19 precautionary measures. Restricted movement during the ongoing National Sterilisation Program also contributed to these decreasing numbers.
Abdul Rahman Al Shamsi, manager of accidents and roads assistance Unit, acknowledged the commitment of community members in adhering to the precautionary measures implemented to combat the spread of the virus.
He added that Rafid is a fabric of the UAE community and takes pride in providing simple and quick automotive solutions to all vehicle drivers and provide holistic services to all members of the community.
