AED 500 Fine for Dirty Cars

Recommended Posts

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.

Do you think this is a good step taken by the Dubai Municipality to improve the aesthetics of the city? Share your thoughts with us and also discuss why is it important to keep the car clean.

I thought this was an old thing? They’re going round the garages in Al Quoz now putting stickers on the windows of dusty cars parked outside. 

Would be nice to see people actually washing their cars rather than wiping the dust off with a rag. The sheer number of nice cars I see here with scratched and swirled paint make my teeth itchy.

So true, this seems like an old news as I got one orange sticker on my Pajero when I was traveling for 3 weeks sometime last year.

This Dubai municipality sticker for not cleaning the car has worlds strongest glue and world's toughest paper, that I couldn't remove it, then cleaner failed and then took the car to window tinting guy and he took 30 minutes to remove that sticker. He used all the tricks and tools, from the blade, water, alcohol spray and even burning it. Damn, better clean your car guys rather wasting a couple of hours getting it out.

Hahaha, you could have asked them to completely cover your car with these stickers, it would never come off and would protect your nice paint :)

      Following the introduction of a new number plate design last year, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has now kicked off a campaign urging all motorists to upgrade to the new plates, ahead of mandatory upgrades from July for select codes.
      The upgrade is currently available for all types of distinguished and special number plates across all codes, and from May it will also be available optionally for unowned (allotted randomly through vehicle registration) plates.
      A guide on how to get a new Dubai number plate
      According to RTA, over the next couple of years, all categories of vehicle number plates will have to be replaced.
      As the RTA presses ahead with its new plates regime, unowned car plates with codes A, B and C will be among the first to be up for mandatory replacement from July.
      The new number plate design that includes either a black and white or colour Dubai logo, depending on the amount you pay, was launched last year after the introduction of double codes necessitated a redesign.
      “The RTA has developed a new strategy for number plates resulting in a new generation of number plates with double codes. This has accordingly resulted in the whole design for the number plates to be changed to adopt the single and double codes with the same design language,” said Sultan Al Marzouqi, director of RTA’s Vehicle Licensing.
      The double codes are being introduced as the RTA is running out of single codes, as the number of vehicles continues to rise at an alarming rate in Dubai.
      According to RTA, over the next couple of years, all categories of vehicle number plates — whether purchased online, bought in an auction or allotted through the vehicle registration process — will have to be replaced in phases.
      In the next phase, beginning January next year, plates with codes D, E, F, G, H and I will have to be replaced, while in January 2020 replacement for codes J, K, L, M, N and O will start and following that in January 2021, it will be the turn of all unowned plates with codes P to Z as well as other types of plates.
      Depending on the size of the plates and colour of the logo, the prices of the plates vary.
      A regular short number plate with a black and white logo will cost Dh35, while a long number plate in the same category will cost Dh50.
      For those who already own number plates with colour logo of Dubai, the replacement for the long and short plates will cost Dh35 and Dh50, respectively, while those who want to buy a new plate with coloured Dubai logo will have to pay Dh400 irrespective of the plate’s size.
      As for the distinguished or special number plates, the replacement will cost Dh500, with the process to be completed mandatorily by the end of this year.
      Al Marzouqi said motorists with owned number plates willing to get the plates replaced can either proceed immediately to any of the RTA-affiliated vehicle testing and registration centres or get it replaced at the time of their scheduled renewal, while those with unowned number plates can wait till May to do the same.

      The regular Dubai Taxis already have cameras installed inside them and now Uber is also adding the same feature in its taxis. Talking about the new safety features in Uber app, Sachin Kansal, Uber's global head of safety product stated that with more than 15 million trips registered on Uber each day, there is nothing more important than ensuring the safety of both the drivers and the riders. He further added that the company has been working since last year to develop products which will improve the user experience and provide peace of mind to everyone.

      Besides adding cameras, the Uber app will also introduce a shortcut to dial emergency numbers as well as an option to share trip details with trusted contacts with a single tap. More features will be added to improve the overall security standard of both the driver and the rider. Kansal also stated that the addition of these features will not impact the Uber service pricing.
      Do you appreciate this step taken by Uber? Or do you think this is somehow a breach of privacy for the riders? Do share your opinion with us.

      RTA has announced that Du will soon begin the installation of Wi-Fi services on the taxis and within a year, all the vehicles will have the Wi-Fi technology. Ahmad Hashem Behroozian, CEO of RTA’s Public Transport Agency stated that adding the Wi-Fi service in the taxi will allow the riders to conveniently browse the internet on their mobile phones and carry out important tasks while traveling.
