In line with its efforts to provide the best security to the public, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) is currently testing a new clean energy motorbike to be used by the Al Fazaa security force. The MoI has started testing the electric bike in public parks, the Aspire zone and the Corniche, much to the delight of passers-by who have had their photos taken with the vehicle. The “T3”, made in California by T3 Motion, has attracted the attention of security agencies and companies from around the world because of its innovative technology and its zero gas emission. It was first introduced to the region in the United Arab Emirates. The bike’s battery charges in a short period of three to four hours. A fully charged vehicle is capable of running for approximately seven hours. The T3 also comes with an extra battery, with which it can run for 14 hours. The electric bike, which can reach a speed of 25 kilometres per hour, comes with LED headlights, a siren and an optional GPS tracking system and a video camera. The proposal to test the T3 is in line with the ministry’s efforts to control and prevent crime, due to the vehicle’s ability to navigate in congested areas and sites that can’t be reached by regular motor vehicles, such as in malls and recreation areas. The ministry believes that by using world-class machines such as the T3 it will be able to increase the public’s trust in the police force. Upon its introduction in the Aspire Sports Park, the policeman using the T3 was able to spot two individuals in a brawl. The policeman controlled the situation quickly and alerted the authorities about the incident and took the appropriate measures.
