Over 200 Abandoned Vehicles Seized in Abu Dhabi

Recommended Posts

Driving around the capital city, Abu Dhabi, you would find a number of vehicles covered in dust and abandoned by their owners. The authorities in Abu Dhabi have decided to take strict measures against it and have seized 242 vehicles from the Musaffah and surrounding areas.

According to the Abu Dhabi Municipality, an inspection campaign is being conducted to improve the appearance of the capital city and as a result, these dusty old abandoned cars are being confiscated. The authorities are first leaving a warning sticker on the car and if the owner does not take any step, he/she will receive a fine of Dh 3,000. Moreover, more than 700 street vendors have been fined as well as a part of the campaign.

Do you think this is a good initiative taken by the Abu Dhabi authorities or should they provide a better alternative for the situation? Do share with us if you have any suggestion about how this matter could be resolved.

      Due to some unforeseen situation we like to switch the drive to Maliha area instead of Sweihan. Rest everything as usual.
      Apologies for last minute change and will definitely do the sweihan route next week IA.
      Meeting time: 11:30 PM, convoy will move sharp at 11:45 PM
      Where: Adnoc Petrol Station Maleha Road
      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/mzb26kxzte72
       
      As promised after my two weeks break, will offer something really exciting for all experienced off-road drivers at Carnity. So what better than Sweihan adventurous night drive in the month of July when we have some well experienced night hawks in the convoy now. Thanks to Rahim bhai teaching in last few drives to break their fear of leading, I think this Sweihan night drive will hone their skills even more with tall rolling step dunes. They are difficult to enter due to their height, and one can only access them through "steps" strategy. Once on top they are fun to drive as all big dunes are inter-connected and offer broad ridge to ride and kick your last drop of adrenaline. 
      P.S. This is real Sweihan area drive and not Nahil area what we did in March. This will be quiet a few notch above Nahil dunes.
      For newbies, I will post something equally exciting in next week for 13 July 2017.
      When: 6 July 2017
      Meeting time: 11:00 PM
      Starting time: 11:15 PM (SHARP)

      GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/CgheV2mSLp12
      Level of drive: Fewbies - Intermediate

      Type of drive: Adrenaline kicking fun drive with plenty of breaks and food time on top of some awesome dunes
      Plan: Learn advance night sand off-road driving
      What to bring along: Food, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn
      Approximate finish time: 6 AM - 7 July 2017

      If you haven’t washed your car for a long time and it seems considerably dirty, better get it cleaned quickly or you can get a fine of AED 500.
      The Dubai Municipality has issued a warning stating that the residents cannot leave their cars dirty or unwashed for a long time as this damages the beauty and appearance of the city. Talking about the issue, Abdul Majeed Abdul Aziz Al Saifaie, director of Dubai Municipality’s waste management department mentioned that the vehicle will first be identified and if it seems dirty enough to spoil the appearance of the city, a warning sticker will be issued to the driver. The driver will have 15 days to clean the vehicle, however, if the owner of the car does not respond, the vehicle will be moved to scrap yard. If the fine is still not paid, the car will be auctioned.
      It is also important to note that this warning applies to those cars that have been unwashed for months and not the ones that have light dirt. In Abu Dhabi, the municipality gives a three-day warning to the driver and if the car is not cleaned, the owner has to pay a fine of AED 3,000.
