Two people lost their lives, and eight others got injured in traffic accidents on Dubai's roads during the holy festival of Eid Al Adha.

Two people lost their lives, and eight others got injured in traffic accidents on Dubai’s roads during the holy festival of Eid Al Adha.

Police stated that around nine accidents took place during the break.


Both deaths were due to a vehicle collision with a pedestrian during the first day of Eid Al Adha.

The acting director of Dubai Police’s Traffic Department, Col Jumaa Bin Suwaidan, confirmed that the deaths happened on Saturday.

Col Bin Suwaidan said that the first day of Eid Al Adha saw five traffic accidents in which people died in two different run-over incidents. Four people were severely injured in three separate collision accidents.

Speeding, failing to follow the traffic laws and not leaving a distance between two vehicles were the primary reasons for the accidents.

Two accidents occurred on the second day of Eid Al Adha in the Al Refaa area and others on Umm Suqeim road, causing two moderate injuries.

One driver got a minor injury in a traffic accident which occurred on Friday between two vehicles at the International City road. At the same time, one accident was reported during the last day of Eid in which a driver got injured.


Col Bin Suwaidan asked drivers not to use mobile phones and keep their total concentration on the road while following the speed limit.

The Command Centre of Dubai Police got more than 50000 calls on its emergency hotline 999 during the time of Eid Al Adha.

On the other hand, Sharjah reported zero traffic deaths between July 9 and 11, while the call centre of its COR (Central Operations Room) got 22,112 calls.

Beachgoers relished a safe holiday as Dubai Police reported no maritime incidents.

The deputy director of Ports Police Station, Col Rashid Thani Al Ayel, stated that they put in place a measure to protect beachgoers at 12 points around Dubai’s shores.

The Land Rescue Department of Dubai Police reported 20 incidents during the holiday, including individuals trapped in lifts and cars that were damaged accidentally.
