Woman motorist stuck in cruise control at 120kmph on MBZ road




A 22-year-old Emirati woman was saved by police after her car was stuck in cruise control at 120kmph while she was heading from Sharjah to Ras Al Khaimah.

Police risked their lives when they drove their vehicle in front of Aysha Hassan and told her to bang her car in the rear of their vehicle to slow it down.

The frightened Aysha was reluctant to this but the trick worked and her car stopped. The woman’s brakes stopped working near the National Paints Bridge in Sharjah.

She phoned Umm Al Quwain police, who tried to calm her down before sending patrols to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, where she was heading.

“One of them phoned me again and told me that he would drive in front of me while another police car was behind me,” she said.

“The policeman then told me he would slow down so my car will bang into his vehicle. I was scared and tried to dodge his vehicle but I had no choice. I hit the police vehicle and may car came to a standstill.”

She said traffic police from Umm Al Quwain, Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah joined hands to calm her down through the plight and save her life.

“She was screaming. She was in a bad psychological state but we tried our best to calm her down before acting to stop her car,” said Major Sultan bin Youkha, acting director of Umm Al Quwain traffic police.
