A radar in Abu Dhabi captured a car whose rear windscreen flew off as a result of excessive speed. The Abu Dhabi Police said on Monday that the car on the Sheikh Maktoum Road in Abu Dhabi was travelling at a speed of 187km/h when it was captured by the ‘sniper radar’.
The police also released a photo showing the rear windscreen flying off the car.
