WATCH: Hero cop risks safety to push broken down car off a busy road
All in a day’s work for Dubai’s officers in green and white…
While Dubai Police might be the most technologically advanced police force in the world, sometimes there’s no substitute to rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty to get the job done.
Such was the case for one Dubai traffic officer who bravely risked his own safety to singlehandedly push a broken down vehicle off a busy motorway in an effort to avoid any potential accidents.
In a video released on social media, Officer Waleed Abdullah can be seen heroically maneuvering the car carefully through traffic until he successfully diverts it to a safe area off to the side of the road.

The video was captured on a mixture of CCTV footage and from a police dash cam, and you can clearly see officer Waleed keep his cool in a potentially life-threatening situation as he checks his surroundings.
Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri of Dubai Police praised the hero cop’s selflessness and quick thinking, announcing that he would receive a promotion for his bravery. Hear hear!
