Dubai: Police in Dubai and Abu Dhabi have warned drivers to exercise extreme caution while on the road, emphasising the importance of not engaging in dangerous behaviours such as allowing passengers to stick their heads out of sunroof or sit in vehicle’s windows while driving.

This advisories from Dubai and the Abu Dhabi Police issued on Friday in the wake of a number of traffic accidents last year, which led to injuries due to individuals falling from moving vehicles.

Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, Director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, emphasised that such actions pose risk not to the individual involved in the action but also endanger lives of other road users.
