Dubai warning over abandoned cars


DUBAI – The Dubai Municipality said that owners of vehicles abandoned in the emirate will be given an SMS warning as part of new rules.

The Municipality said vehicle owners will get an SMS notification to remove their car before the deadline. Previously, notification stickers were placed on windshields of abandoned vehicles.

Following the SMS alert, cars still left unattended after the deadline will be towed away, according to the Dubai Municipality.

According to the UAE law, vehicle owners have 14 days to remove their vehicles that have been left unattended before these are towed away. The law also applies to trailers and boats.

Violators face a fine of Dh3,000, while second-time offenders will be given a Dh6,000 fine. PIA/Expat Media
