Dubai Police use car-mounted radars
According to Gulf News, Dubai Police has deployed unmarked police vehicles fitted with mobile speed cameras. The number of vehicles will eventually expand to 12, and they patrol Sheikh Zayed Road and Emirates Road. Apparently the cars will chase you down and fine you Dhs 200 on the spot.
Everyone already knows how much (or how little) radars do to reduce speeding by the rich and the illiterate (or both). Let’s just hope this does not lead to high-speed chases. We tried to get in touch with the traffic department to discuss a safety campaign, but no one knew any English in their entire telephone network.
Anyway, the funny part is Gulf News already revealed what these unmarked vehicles will be, just by printing a photo of the interior – the 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. You’ve been warned.
