This Dubai policeman fined himself for hitting a parked car last week

He probably could’ve just walked away and nobody would’ve been any the wiser, but this Dubai Policeman thought it right to fine himself and leave a note when he accidentally hit a parked car.

Corporal Abdullah Ibrahim Mohammed hit the car of Egyptian Doctor Mohammad Ahmad Nabeel Abdul Aziz, who was so impressed with the gesture he took to social media to express his gratitude for the policeman.

After the story went viral, Dubai Police honoured Corporal Ibrahim, presenting him with a certificate of thanks and appreciation.

Major General Abdullah Al Merri even ended up promoting the policeman.

Now, if only the rest of Dubai’s population could fine themselves for every parking lot scrape.
