A toll-free line 999 has been dedicated for emergency cases and 901 for non-emergency reports.

The Ras Al Khaimah Police have deployed 77 traffic and security patrols to secure celebrations during the 48th National Day across the emirate.

"Our teams are all geared up to attend to any emergency situation, said Major-General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan Al Nuaimi, General Commander of the RAK Police.

The 77 patrols will be mainly stationed at busy spots. More police staff will be deployed to avoid any traffic snarls, said Brigadier Abdullah Ali Menakhas, head of the celebration security committee.

"A toll-free line 999 has been dedicated for emergency cases and 901 for non-emergency reports," pointed out Al Nuaimi

The special security committee will keep a watch over the celebrations, and ensure smooth traffic flow and road users' safety, he added.

"Inspection raids will be carried out round-the-clock across the emirate to curb all violations, essentially those related to National Day decorations."

All motorists are urged to strictly observe the Ministry of Interior's conditions in decking up their vehicles to mark the occasion, he pointed out.

Brigadier Menakhas said: "Spraying foam on drivers, exceeding permitted number of passengers, getting out of car windows or sunroof, and colouring windshields are prohibited, and shall be strictly dealt with."

Adding unlicensed motor accessories, performing stunts or drifting, and roaring on the road are also banned, he warned.

"Never leave your car engine on while getting out for any reason. Never park your car haphazardly or block the road for others. Never drive on the opposite direction of traffic and observe all traffic rules and regulations."

Removing or hiding car number plate in any way shall be stringently penalised, Brigadier Menakhas pointed out.
