Ajman: Ajman Police have recorded 245 traffic accidents during the Eid Al Adha weekend, but no fatalties, an official said on Thursday.

Lieutenant Colonel Saif Abdullah Al Falasi, director of Traffic and Patrols in Ajman police, said they recorded five serious accidents during Eid, which is a 17 per cent reduction compared to Eid Al Adha last year.

Al Falasi said 240 minor traffic accidents were recorded, which is a 42 per cent reduction over last year’s figures.

About 45 police cars patrolled Ajman’s roads over the Eid holidays, which helped maintain smooth traffic flow and reduce the number of accidents.
