Dubai: Many Dubai motorists do not give way to emergency vehicles, police officials said during the launch of an awareness campaign on Tuesday.


Brigadier Omar Al Shamsi, deputy director of the operations department, said Dubai Police recorded 162 cases of people not giving way to emergency vehicles in 2015, an increase from 121 in 2014 and 81 in 2013.


“I am sure the number has risen this year. That is why we need to make sure that motorists move out of the way when they see emergency vehicles, especially ambulances, as they can be risking someone’s life if they do not,” he said.


He said every second is precious while responding to emergencies and any delay could cost someone’s life. “People should put themselves in those people’s shoes, it could be them tomorrow in that ambulance.”
