The Dubai Police have arrested a 21-year-old GCC national for recklessly riding a quad bike on a main road and without driving license, thus endangering his life and the lives of other road users.

The arrest came soon after a video of the man performing dangerous stunts and fleeing the scene after falling off the vehicle and sustaining injuries.

Colonel Rashid Mohammed Saleh Al Shehhi, Acting Director of Bur Dubai Police Station, confirmed that they arrested the young man, who performed the stunts in their jurisdiction area, to send a clear message that the Dubai Police do not tolerate violations that threaten the safety of road users and community members.

 “The young man was driving an unlicensed quad bike without a  driving license”, he added.

Col. Al Shehhi explained that such behaviour endangers the lives of other road users and violates traffic laws and regulations. He also indicated that a number of traffic tickets have been issued against the reckless man, including driving the vehicle in a way that endangers the motorist’s life and the lives of others, riding an unlicensed quad bike, driving without a valid driver’s license, and fleeing the scene of the accident.”

Col. Al Shehhi indicated that the young man had been referred to the Public Prosecution for further legal action. He also reaffirmed the keenness of the Dubai Police on maintaining the security and safety of the public and urged motorists and motorcyclists, especially young people, to avoid committing such violations and dangerous stunts.

He also urged members of the community not to share such videos as they leave a negative impact on society.

“Members of the public members are also urged to report reckless drivers or any violations to (901) or via the ‘Police Eye’ service on the Dubai Police smart app”, Col. Al Shehhi concluded.
