8. Accident guidelines
Should you be involved in an accident, strict procedures will apply, however - if you handle yourself well and follow this advice - it need not be such a harrowing experience.
1. DO NOT MOVE THE VEHICLES - no matter where the accident occurs, whether on your property or on a main road causing major congestion.
The police need to see the position of all vehicles to assess responsibility. They will likely allow you to move your vehicle once an assessment has been completed.
DO NOT MOVE YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL THE POLICE TELL YOU TO
2. If you have a colleague or friend who speaks Arabic - try to get them to come to the accident scene. Whilst many of the police do speak English, some may not be fluent.
3. Contact police on 4890699, 4890670 or 999, provide them with the location of the accident including names of landmarks near to you i.e. large shops, buildings etc.
4. If there are injuries call 999 and ask for an ambulance or contact Hamad Hospital on 4392222. If you are injured and are able, it is advisable to arrange for someone else to come and stay with your vehicle.
5. At the accident scene you will be asked to provide your license, vehicle registration and insurance documents (it is advisable to have photocopies of these documents available in your vehicle).
The police will listen to the explanations of all involved and complete their preliminary roadside report.
They will advise all involved when to attend the Traffic Department (normally the following day, although it can be immediate) to receive the documentation required for repair-work and the insurance companys.
It is illegal for any garage in Qatar to carry out any accident or body work repairs on your vehicle without the authorised paperwork from Police and or insurance company.
6. Ensure you get contact details from the policeman making the road side report - his name, which police station he is from, details of his shift schedule over the next few days.
Try your best to retrieve his personal GSM phone number, (THIS WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF FRUSTRATION, WASTED TIME AND RUNNING AROUND)
7. It is advisable that your company PRO or well informed Arabic speaking colleague assist you at the police station.
8. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING unless you fully understand what it is, DO NOT accept the blame if you think it is not your fault.
9. Do not lose your temper
Do not use bad language
Do not use aggressive behaviour
Do be patient
DO SMILE AND BE RESPECTFULL TO THE POLICE
(it works wonders)
