From Dubai comes the story of an ordinary man being singled out for honors by the police department after a selfless display of civic-mindedness.
An unnamed Dubai resident was driving when he saw some debris on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. It’s a situation we’ve all been in before, and almost always simply passed by, thinking “someone should do something about that debris.”
Well, the resident decided that person should be him, and when the Dubai police arrived to do just that, they found the man had already cleaned up the debris for them.
The department claimed the man had explained he did it out of concern for the safety of other motorists.
“Celebrating unsung heroes. It’s not about physical strength, but about the initiative.” Here is a new story from the heart of Dubai, and a well-deserved recognition from Dubai Police,” the Department posted on X, formerly Twitter, with a short video of the story.

Dubai Post then shared the video, calling it “an act of kindness and community spirit,” and causing it to go viral in the country.
In the UAE and the Muslim world at large, but particularly in Dubai owing to the mixing of cultures, gift-giving is practiced with extreme frequency, and in the video it appears the police gave the man a present of sorts. All in a day’s work.
