Service to be expanded
Saif Al Felasi, Chief Executive Officer at Enoc, pointed that they are looking to expand the service to provide it to more individuals. “Expanding the service to 112 petrol stations will help people to get their minor accident report without need to go to petrol stations. It will cut time and effort,” Al Felasi said.
Brigadier Saeed Hamad Bin Sulaiman, director of Al Rashidiya police station, said: “The service is for people who don’t use smart phones or don’t have much knowledge with technology. Some people insist to get the traffic report from police stations.”
He said that Dubai Police noticed about 82 per cent of received reports to the police stations are minor traffic accidents where people wait the arrival of police patrol to get the report. “Motorists would wait for 20 to 25 minutes until the police patrol reaches the accident site. Moreover, reporting accidents can take another 24 minutes, resulting in traffic congestions,” Brig Bin Sulaiman added.
