Police’s novel way to teach careless motorists a lesson

Sharjah: “Don’t leave your car switched on, because it may be stolen by thieves or the police.” The Sharjah Police have  adopted an innovative  and sophisticated way to increase the public’s awareness on the need to switch off their vehicles before getting out of them.

The police have allocated a team named ‘Watcher Team’ whose members are deployed at banks and pharmacies where people usually leave their cars unattended thinking they would take only a couple of seconds in the store.

The police monitor these cars and in order to make their owners learn a lesson, they “steal” them. When he/she goes back to the place where they left their car, a camera records their reactions when it isn’t there.

The police let them believe that their car has been stolen before returning it to them.

The police are attempting to educate people that a policeman cannot protect every car on the road, especially those that are left switched on and unattended by indifferent owners.
