Dubai Police distribute over 71,000 Iftar meals


Dubai Police distributed 71,850 Iftar meals to motorists in the first week of Ramadan, as part of efforts to enhance road safety during the holy month.

The 'Ramadan without Accidents' initiative seeks to curb an increase in accidents before Iftar time, and reckless behaviour by some drivers rushing home to break their fast.

The meals are distributed at busy intersections by traffic officers, volunteers and other participating entities.

Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, Director of the General Department of Traffic, praised the efforts of all stakeholders and emphasised the importance of cautious driving during Ramadan to preserve the sanctity of the month.

The campaign is being implemented in collaboration with various organisations, including the Department of Traffic Awareness, the General Department for Human Rights, Al Khawaneej Police Station, the Emirates Red Crescent, Dubai Charity Association, Dubai Customs, Dubai Digital Authority, Med7 Pharmacy, Life Pharmacy and Talabat.
