Pakistani expat honored by Dubai Police for saving motorists from hole

Back in November, Dubai Police honored the Pakistani ex-pat who controlled the traffic in the absence of the traffic police.

Pakistani expat Abdulaziz Abdulhamid receives recognition from Dubai authorities for keeping the road safe for commuters in Sharjah during the recent rainfall.

Both the Emirate’s Police and the Ministry of Human and Emiratisation gave him tokens of appreciation. Abdulhamid took the initiative of putting up makeshift barriers to warn drivers of the large, hazardous hole on the roadside, said Sharjah Police.

A patch of sand had sunk and collapsed creating a hazard for motorists. Abdulaziz Abdulhamid got into action and built a barricade with whatever he had available. A video of Abdulaziz Abdulhamid got viral on social media building the barricade and warning the drivers.

“We highly value and appreciate such humane gestures. We cannot thank Abdulaziz enough for what he did; his considerate gesture truly reflects kindness and compassion,” said Khalil Al Khoori, Mohre’ undersecretary for Human Resources Affairs while receiving Abdulaziz at the ministry’s premises.

General Abdullah Mubarak bin Ameer deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Sharjah Police, honored Abdulaziz on Thursday morning. “The force is keen on recognizing residents who go above and beyond their duties to help the community,” he said.
