One can report road accidents in Dubai by using the government’s new DubaiNow app.

The new service allows motorists to report minor traffic accidents conveniently instead of waiting for the police to arrive at the scene or go to a police station.
By recording an incident on the DubaiNow app, motorists receive a Dubai Police report via email or text for any insurance claim.
