UAE: Police report 1,000 vehicles damaged in Dubai due to unstable weather

On Tuesday, officials in the UAE announced that bad weather at the beginning of the week had an impact on around 1,000 automobiles.

Authorities reported that approximately 1,000 vehicles were impacted by adverse weather conditions that struck the UAE earlier this week. This statistic is derived from the number of electronic certificates issued by the Dubai Police.

Residents whose vehicles sustained damage due to floods and other natural disasters opted to apply for an electronic 'To Whom It May Concern' certificate. This certificate serves to substantiate facts and establish circumstances in incident reports, facilitating claims from insurance companies.

Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, the Director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police, revealed that around 1,000 e-certificates were swiftly issued within less than 24 hours of launching the automated service. This service streamlines the process for car owners, enabling them to submit a photo of the damaged vehicle for assessment.

Previously, motorists were required to physically bring their vehicles to the nearest police station for inspection to verify the cause of damage. However, with the introduction of the automated service, this step is no longer necessary. Car owners can now conveniently visit the Dubai Police website, where they can apply for the certificate package service. They can then select the 'To Whom It May Concern' service specifically tailored for natural disasters, attach photos of their damaged vehicle, and receive the certificate electronically within just five minutes, for a fee of Dh95.

Alrazzouqi emphasized the simplicity of the process, stating that customers can also obtain additional information by contacting 901. This digitalization of the certificate issuance process not only expedites the procedure for affected vehicle owners but also enhances efficiency and convenience in accessing essential services provided by Dubai Police.
