Truck driv­ers tar­geted in safety drive

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

The world’s first sec­ond-hand Rolls Royce show­room has opened in Shar­jah.

The show­room hosts a col­lec­tion of pre­vi­ously-owned Rolls-Royce mo­tor cars, such as the re­gal 2009 Phan­tom EWB and an eye-catch­ing 2016 Or­ange Metal­lic with Burst Sil­ver Bon­net Ghost.

But how much of a bar­gain will you get? Well, the Ghost would cost about Dhs1,650,000 new but can be snapped up sec­ond­hand for Dhs1,250,000, ac­cord­ing to a sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Mam­douh Khairal­lah, Gen­eral Man­ager of Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars AGMC, the au­tho­rised Rolls-Royce dealer, said:”We are de­lighted to have opened the world’s first Prove­nance show­room, which will pro­vide our dis­cern­ing clien­tele with the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue the jour­ney of a Rolls-Royce that has been metic­u­lously cared for and main­tained at the high­est level.

“The first of its kind, this ded­i­cated show­room pro­vides the un­ri­valled at­ten­tion to de­tail, along with ex­cep­tional ser­vice which al­lows us to pro­vide mo­tor cars that are no dif­fer­ent, and drive as beau­ti­fully as the ones leav­ing Good­wood to­day.”

The firm said the open­ing of the show­room is in line with the AGMC’s ex­pan­sion plans for the re­gion, which will in­clude new launches, sales and ser­vice fa­cil­i­ties and prod­ucts for Rolls-Royce clients.

Cus­tomers who pur­chase a sec­ond hand Roll­sRoyce through the new Prove­nance show­room will get a min­i­mum of two-year ser­vic­ing and war­ranty cover.

They can also still add their own per­sonal touches by choos­ing from Rolls-Royce ac­ces­sories such as a gold or il­lu­mi­nated Spirit Of Ec­stasy, Starlight Head­liner, pic­nic bas­ket, bat­tery charg­ers, wheel rims and car cov­ers. Abu Dhabi Po­lice is car­ry­ing out a cam­paign to raise safety aware­ness among lorry driv­ers on the Abu Dhabi to Al Ghuwaifat Road. The Traf­fic and Pa­trols De­part­ment has des­ig­nated sev­eral points at petrol sta­tions and at driv­ers’ rest lo­ca­tions along the road from where they will is­sue ad­vice, ac­cord­ing to na­tional news agency WAM. Ma­jor Suhail Sayah Al Mazroui, Chief of the Western Re­gion High­ways Sec­tion, urged mo­torists to ad­here to des­ig­nated speed lim­its, avoid over­tak­ing, stop their ve­hi­cles when hor­i­zon­tal vis­i­bil­ity lev­els re­duce dur­ing fog or er­ratic weather con­di­tions and ad­here to the cor­rect lanes while driv­ing. He also re­minded them that trucks are not al­lowed into Abu Dhabi City dur­ing peak hours. He ex­plained that the aware­ness ini­tia­tive fo­cuses on se­ri­ous vi­o­la­tions and causes of traf­fic ac­ci­dents that re­cently oc­curred in the Western Re­gion and aims to pro­vide ad­vice about the im­por­tance of ad­her­ing to speed lim­its des­ig­nated for trucks, in ad­di­tion to the im­por­tance of us­ing seat­belts. The aware­ness ini­tia­tive in­cludes dis­tribut­ing brochures in Ara­bic and English for driv­ers com­ing into or leav­ing the UAE.
