Oh no, there is now a Dhs500 fine if you leave your cars dirty in Dubai
Yup, that's right. It might be the right time to stop procrastinating and get your rides to the carwash.
If you're on holiday and parked your car in a public parking lot, it would be best to ask a friend or a family member to wash the car for you. Unless, of course, you don't mind paying a Dhs500 fine.
Dubai Municipality issued a new rule that you can no longer leave any unwashed car that has been left in public for a long period of time.
They went on to explain the reason behind this being that it "affects the cleanliness of the city and the aesthetic appearance of Dubai."
This rule will apply to cars which look like they've been abandoned. Inspectors will especially look for signs of vandalism, damage, and rubbish on the car.
All identified cars will have a notice stuck on the car's windshield, and authorities will allow up to 15 days for the owner to clean the vehicle. Otherwise, say buh-bye to your cars.
So beware drivers! You don't want to walk up to your car one morning just to realise it's been towed away.
