He further stated that RTA has alerted all service suppliers, auto agents, and technical testing personnel to not register an electric car in Dubai unless it has been verified by a UAE-based accredited agent.

    No More Carpooling in UAE

    A few months back, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) suspended the carpooling permit known as ‘Sharekni’ leaving the drivers confused whether or not they can continue with the ride sharing. Now, the UAE police have confirmed that a Dh3,000 fine will be imposed on anyone indulging in carpooling. Besides the Dh3,000 fine, motorists will also receive 24 black points and their vehicle will be confiscated for 30 days if they are found breaking this traffic law. Talking to the media, Brigadier Ibrahim Sultan Al Zaabi, director of the transport security department mentioned that the new regulation regarding banning carpool is introduced to ensure the protection of every citizen. He further mentioned that there are a lot of dangers associated with carpooling such as theft, fraud and sexual harassment which is why it is important to put an end to this practice. The director of Planning and Business Development at RTA’s Public Transport Agency, Mohammad Abu Bakr Al Hashemi stated that there are a number of smart taxis and ride-hailing services available in the region which are safe and should be used by the citizens as opposed to choosing the carpooling option. Although banning carpooling will affect a lot of people, it does have some disadvantages, especially for women. Do share your thoughts if you are one of those who will get affected by this rule.
  23. We have some bad news for the Abu Dhabi residents. The Department of Transport (DoT) has recently added new areas to the paid parking zones. Some of them include Al Bateen, Al Karama and Al Muroor. Sadly, all of these areas were previously free parking zones. The new paid parking system called ‘Mawafiq’ will soon spread across all of Abu Dhabi and there will be no free parking zones. According to the Department of Transport, this paid parking system will help to tackle the issue of illegal parking and will help in reducing the traffic congestion in the city. However, residents seem unhappy and have complained that this new system will eat up a significant portion of their monthly budget. Talking to Khaleej Times, Awad Mustafa living in Al Bateen mentioned that the paid parking system puts an extra financial burden on his family. Another resident mentioned that she has to pay over Dh800 for the annual parking permit and that is definitely a lot of money. Do you think the decision for the paid parking zone is for the betterment of the capital city or will it affect your monthly expenditure as well?
  24. Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) is best known for introducing new policies and procedures to make the lives of an ordinary Dubai’s citizen convenient. Following the introduction of a new way to pay the fine in installments through the credit card, RTA has now launched an ‘automatic vehicle registration renewal’ service which is totally online. The automatic online vehicle registration renewal service was previously available only for the corporate sector but is now officially accessible to the private individuals as well. The move is a part of the RTA’s grand plan to migrate most of its services to digital platforms. So how do you take advantage of this service? It’s fairly simple! Just visit the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) website and click on the ‘Licensing’ service tab. After that, you can sign up with your personal details including the vehicle’s plate number. It is also important to have the e-wallet service which is absolutely free and allows the motorist to pay for the services online. The e-wallet service can be obtained by signing up on www.nol.ae. You can easily renew your registration 90 days prior to the expiry date and pay online through the e-wallet. A confirmation SMS will be sent and the registration card will be sent via the postal company. Do share your feedback with us regarding how beneficial do you think this service is for the Dubai residents or whether it will create a hassle for those who are not too comfortable using modern digitize methods.
  25. thenational.ae /lifestyle/motoring/watch-the-uae-s-unwritten-driving-rules-1.764359 You might not know it - but you might've picked up a whole new language while living in the UAE. It's not overly difficult to learn - in fact, you might have picked it up in a matter of weeks. It relies mostly on visual cues and actually doesn't involve a single word. And you'll only learn it if you drive a car. Yes, we're talking about that unspoken language of driving on the UAE's highways - and every gesture, action and unnecessary light flash that goes with it. While you'll pick up fairly quickly on why that person behind you is high beaming you so furiously when you're going 80kph in the fast lane, there's a host of other light flashing, indicator flicking and tailgating that makes up this unspoken vernacular. We spoke to motorists about what each of these gestures mean, and brought in the Dubai Police to find out whether they might actually get you in a lot of trouble. 1. Flashing your headlights to force a vehicle to give way? What motorists say: This is used, primarily when travelling in the fast lane, to tell a driver in front to pull over as they are driving too slowly. The number of and time between flashes depends on the driver behind's urgency - read: aggression. What Dubai Police say: It is legal if it is meant as an alert to overtake another vehicle while maintaining a safe distance between the two vehicles, and overtake carefully. _______________ Read more: Complete list of UAE traffic offences and penalties _______________ 2. Leaving the right indicator on while driving in the fast lane What motorists say: Sometimes this is used to indicate to a driver behind that you that you are intending to move out of the way. For instance, if someone has flashed their high beams at you to move, and you cannot, you can indicate right so they know you will move when it is safe to. What Dubai Police say: There is no reason for leaving the right indicator on, and whoever does so will be fined for not giving way to other vehicles. 3. Leaving the left indicator on while driving in the fast lane What motorists say: Some say this means that you have no intention of pulling over; others say it indicates an intent to move but it is unsafe to do so at that moment. What Dubai Police say: It has no meaning in legal traffic procedures. _______________ Read more: Abu Dhabi Police issue safety warning after horror crash _______________ 4. Indicating left or right once, then indicating left or right again What motorists say: This might be a controversial one, as we've only really heard it from one person - but it is supposedly a retort to being flashed from behind in the fast lane and means, in it's politest iteration: 'no, go away, I am not moving'. What Dubai Police say: It has no meaning in legal traffic procedures. 5. Applying the brakes when a car is following close behind What motorists say: This is one reserved for only the most dangerous of motorists - swinging in front of another person, and pumping the brakes so you're very much aware they're angry you didn't move out of the way fast enough. While this is incredibly menacing anywhere in the world, it's even more perilous in the UAE where speed limits are often higher and the vast majority of motorists are used to roads in different countries. No matter how angry you are at the car travelling 20kph slower than the speed limit in front - this should never be practiced. What Dubai Police say: If the practice is made intentionally, a fine will be issued, stating 'driving dangerously in a manner that endangers others’ lives'. _______________ Read more: Dh1,000 fine for rubbernecking introduced in UAE _______________ 6. Using your windscreen's water jets when someone is tailgating you. What motorists say: While not as dangerous as pumping the brakes in front of someone, this is also used to inform someone travelling behind you that you're unhappy with their driving. The idea is that by hitting the water jets while travelling at high speed, the water will fly over your car and hit the windscreen of the one behind, causing them to slow down as they use their windscreen wipers to clear their windscreen. Again, this is risky behaviour - because if a driver has to slam on their brakes with little notice to clear their windscreen, and another car is travelling close behind them, this could cause an accident. What Dubai Police say: It is an individual behaviour and has no meaning in the traffic law 7. Driving very close to the car in the front, instead of using high beam. What motorists say: This is another way drivers try to intimidate people to move out of the way - coming up from behind and tailgating the car in front until they relent and move. What Dubai Police say: It is illegal, and a fine will be issued, stating 'not leaving enough distance behind vehicles'. _______________
