Dubai’s radars have been adjusted to catch people violating coronavirus movement restrictions between 11pm and 6am, a Dubai Police official said.
Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, Director of the General Department of Protective Security and Emergency at Dubai Police, said that radars were adjusted after the announcement of the reopening business activities following a virtual meeting of Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management, chaired by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council.
“Radars are controlled by systems adopting artificial intelligence and it can be adjusted based on the orders,” Maj Gen Al Gaithi said on Monday.
“We changed the setting of the radars on all internal roads and highways to catch violators between 11pm and 6am,” he added.
He said vital sectors remained exempt from movement restrictions and that the permit website is still working for emergency situations.
People who violate the movement restriction between 11pm and 6am in Dubai, will face a Dh3,000 fine.
“People should follow safety rules and keep two metres safe distance, wear masks and gloves as well as limit on three passengers per car,” said Maj Gen Al Gaithi.
