Over the past few months, fines have increased in the UAE for a number of road-related violations. Not wearing a seatbelt, speeding, or leaving your car running while you run into a shop can now all cost you a hefty fine, but there's another, lesser known infraction that could get even the most conscientious driver in hot water.
Having a dirty car in Dubai has always run the risk of getting a fine, but Dubai Municipality is now cracking down on drivers who leave the dust on for too long.
According to a new video released by the Municipality, fines start at AED500.
That's right-- the LOWEST fine you can receive for having a dirty car is AED500...so we don't want to know what happens if you leave it sitting around for weeks at a time.
This is especially important for people leaving their cars in parking lots or other public places, where police are more likely to spot them and issue the fines.
