It has been found on several occasions that motorists fail to give way to emergency vehicles. They even lack the knowledge regarding this. This is the reason, Dubai Police started a campaign named ‘Give Way Give Hope’ in October. The initiative was aimed at teaching motorists the rules of giving way to emergency cars.
The authorities even made and released a video to educate the drivers. We explained in our last article about it, as well:
- go after the emergency car,
- drive on the hard shoulder
- walk on the pedestrian crossing when you find an emergency car coming
- jump over the red signal
