A resident of Dubai Zeid al-Zubeidi received a Hyundai i10 as a gift from the local police department. Zeid got the car because he simply followed the rules of the road in the emirate.
- The car was awarded as part of the safe driving program that has existed in the UAE since 2013, according to the Khaleej Times. As part of the program, drivers are awarded the so-called white points: every month you can get one point, if you do not violate traffic rules at all. Drivers who have accumulated 60 points in five years (that is, have never violated the rules during this period) automatically become participants in the lottery and have a chance to win a car.
- This year Zeid al-Zubeidi became the winner. Prize - Hyundai i10 hatchback.
- Earlier, in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah, they found a driver who, over 50 years of experience, has never deviated from the traffic rules at all.
Fines for traffic violations in the Emirates are severe: for example, an unfastened seat belt will cost 400 dirhams (about 7,200 rubles), a ride on the red one - 1,000 dirhams (18,000 rubles). Plus, penalty points are awarded to this driver (in just a year you can get 24 such points, then the license is withdrawn for a period of three months). For drunk driving in the UAE, you face a prison term and deprivation of rights for a year.
