Dubai Police have honored a traffic cop who risked his life to clear traffic on the Sheikh Zayed Road recently.
The road saw a few traffic accidents that caused a massive traffic jam. Debris from the accidents made the traffic situation worse.
Mahdi Taseem Qassem from the General Department of Traffic then stepped out of his vehicle and removed some of these objects from the middle of the road to clear the traffic.
A photographer happened to be stuck in traffic at that time and photographed him while the officer was going beyond the call of duty.
Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police Major-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri praised the positive role played by officer Mahdi. “The Dubai Police are proud of his actions,” he said.
