Abu Dhabi traffic violators to get instant texts
Traffic police will be sending the information to the General Department of Traffic and they would inform the motorist by SMS or e-mail
Abu Dhabi motorists will now receive instant messages on traffic violations through an advanced messaging system developed by Abu Dhabi Police.
Gulf News has quoted General manager of Central Operations General Directorate, Brigadier Ali Khalfan Al Daheri as saying, "Abu Dhabi Police are going to make its text messaging system for motorists more advanced and flexible."
According to this new system after having registered the violations, the traffic police will be sending the information to the General Department of Traffic and they would inform the motorist by SMS or e-mail, or by sending video images of the violation.
Brigadier Ali Khalfan Al Daheri said: “The system will provide offenders with details of their violations, like the time, date, place, car plate number, the type of violation, and the penalty amount, as and when a motorist in Abu Dhabi is seen violating traffic rules, he or she will receive an instant message through the advanced messaging system developed by Abu Dhabi Police stating all relevant and important details regarding the traffic violation made, fine amount, nature of violation, exact place of violation and so on and so forth.
The message would also mention all previous violations and fines. General Manager of Central Operations General Directorate, Brigadier Ali Khalfan Al Daheri added, “This will act as a warning to drivers to be careful while driving.”
A major advantage of this new system of instant messaging that has been introduced by Abu Dhabi police is that this up to date information about fines will help motorists pay fines with out waiting for the time of Vehicle registration renewal and this would help avoid accumulation of fines.
More over, when a vehicle owner gives his/ her vehicle to someone from temporary use, the owner would get to know about the traffic violations made by the other party. This would also urge motorists to follow traffic rules as to avoid unnecessary fines.
