You can now get fined for overloading your vehicle
The Federal Transport Authority (FTA) warned motorists and other light vehicles to avoid overloading, which could possibly lead to horrifying accidents.
Not following the scheduled load and not reducing speed when turning can make you lose control of the vehicle due to overloading. Therefore, #FTA recommends that you abide by the safety rules at all times. Avoid overloading.— الهيئة الإتحادية للمواصلات البرية والبحرية (@FTAgovae) November 11, 2019

You can either choose to stay safe on the road, or risk driving an overloaded vehicle - AND face a fine of upto Dhs2000, along with 6 black points. Yikes!
FTA also strictly warns motorists to follow the basic safety rules when loaded.
