It was nice to have a look at the new happiness patrol in Abu Dhabi Last week. This innovative project, which has been launched recently by the Abu Dhabi Police, aims to spread a culture of happiness among road users and to promote positive values and stimulate road users to abide by traffic law.

Law-abiding road users in Abu Dhabi can expect pleasant surprises in the form of appreciation and gift vouchers from police officers in happiness patrol cars. If drivers or pedestrians crossing roads violate any minor traffic rule, the happiness patrol officers will just make them pledge not to repeat it or issue a yellow card as a warning.
