Dubai emergency responders turn to car radios to alert motorists

123RF

Don’t worry if you've been getting alerts on your car radio about oncoming emergency vehicles.

Police and paramedics in Dubai have been using the system to reach out to drivers blocking their way.

A transmitter fitted in their vehicles sends out the warning message that interrupts car radios.

It’s part of the ‘Give Way, Give Hope’ awareness campaign launched by Dubai Police earlier this month.

The fine for not giving way to emergency vehicles is AED 3,000 and six black points.
