1,422 illegally modified vehicles seized in Dubai


DUBAI – A total of 1,422 illegally modified vehicles, including motorcycles, have been seized in Dubai for causing a disturbance, according to Dubai Police.

In Bur Dubai alone, 208 vehicles were seized after they caused noise that disturbed residents in the area, said Brigadier Abdullah Khadim, Director of Bur Dubai Police Station.

Police also confiscated the vehicles of 1,412 motorists who played extremely loud music or caused noise pollution with their vehicles.
“It is very likely that drivers lose control when driving heavily modified cars, especially if engine modifications were made in a way that do not match the type of vehicle or roads,” Brigadier Khadim said in a statement.

Illegal engine modifications are subject to a Dh1,000 fine and 12 black points, plus a 30-day impoundment. Penalties may be intensified depending on the case, police said. ICA/Expat Media
