If you are involved in an accident

/ 27 December 2012

Police say the first thing to do is to make sure people in your vehicle are uninjured, and if anyone is hurt and requires an ambulance, dial 999 and an operator will assist.

If everyone is alright, look over the damage that has occurred. Call 999 and request for the Traffic Police and do not move any vehicles involved. The Traffic Police will arrive and evaluate the accident and fill an accident form.

One copy of the accident form will be given to the vehicles and the licence of the individual who caused the accident will be taken. If you caused the accident, you will need to take the form to your insurance company. If you didn’t cause the accident, then you can take the form to the other driver’s insurance company, so that their insurance company can fix your vehicle.

If an accident occurs in Dubai and all vehicles can be driven, then they should be moved to the side of the road to stop traffic block. Those who do not move their vehicle will be fined Dh100.
