Three men were arrested for driving recklessly, causing accidents and then attempting to evade Dubai Police by driving to Abu Dhabi.

Patrols from the capital’s police force chased the men down Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Road and surrounded them in Seih Al Sedira.

Brig Salem Al Dhaheri, director of the External Roads Traffic department at Abu Dhabi Traffic and Patrols Directorate, said police hatched a plan to catch the men after receiving a report from Dubai Police, who were already in pursuit.

He called on the public to abide by traffic laws, pointing out that the roads are monitored by police round-the-clock to catch reckless drivers.
