New Sharjah crackdown on reckless cyclists, scooter riders, bikers

 

DUBAI – Sharjah Police has begun a fresh crackdown on reckless cyclists, scooter riders and bikers in the emirate as part of a road safety campaign.

The three-week campaign—which began on Sunday (November 21)—will continue until December 15. The campaign targets violators in Al Buhaira area.

Lt. Col. Mohammed bin Haider of Al Buhaira Comprehensive Police Station said that Sharjah Police has dispatched more police patrols to monitor cyclists, bikers and scooter riders.

Haider said the campaign stresses the “importance of all efforts that are made to bring down the number of tragedies happening on roads”.

The campaign will target violations, including failure to wear helmets and reflective vests, reckless driving, overloading and failing to adhere to general road safety rules.

“The scheme aims to detect those who flout traffic and safety regulations and by that pose risk to themselves and to other road users,” the officer said.
