What not to do when driving on Dubai roads


Vehicles will be seized if fine exceeds Dh6,000; hefty fines for racing, modifying engines.


A new law in Dubai authorises the police to confiscate vehicles of drivers participating in street racing without obtaining prior permission. Motorcycles that are driven on road pavements that are meant only for pedestrians will also be confiscated.

Vehicles that have been impounded for racing on roads are required to pay a release amount of Dh100,000, while bikes seized for being driven on pavements need a release amount of Dh50,000, according to the decree.fine

A new decree regarding the seizure of vehicles in Dubai has been issued by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Decree No. (29) of 2015 aims at protecting life, property, ensuring traffic safety and reducing accidents.

The decree specifies the administrative and obligatory confiscation of vehicles.

The decree authorises the Commander in Chief of the Dubai Police, or his representative, based on the traffic control report, to confiscate the vehicle of any erring motorist according to the situations described in Annex Table of the decree. The confiscation period shall not exceed the specified time.

The police is also authorised to confiscate any vehicle that has been modified in a way that can increase its speed limits.fine1

Also if the value of traffic fines issued against the vehicle exceeds Dh6,000 or if it is being driven with an car registration that has expired more than three months ago, then the police can seize the vehicle. The vehicle can also be confiscated if the driver is caught driving recklessly endangering the lives of other road users or if he speeds or tries to flee when asked to stop by the police.

Police can sell seized vehicles

The decree gives the power to the Dubai Police to sell off the confiscated vehicle in an auction if the driver does not pay the fines even after three months from the date confiscation. This is also stipulated in the Law No. 23 of 2015 regarding the disposition of seized vehicles in the Emirate of Dubai.

According to the decree, the driver of a heavy vehicle (who is not UAE national) will be deported if he is caught jumping a red signal. Major-General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, Commander in chief of the Dubai Police, praised the new law that he said reflects the keenness of Shaikh Mohammed in ensuring the safety of road users in Dubai.

From 1st December – ID card must for visas in Sharjah

Expatriates applying for or renewing their residence visas in Sharjah will have to first secure a national ID card.  The rule will take effect from December 1.
The Emirates Identity Authority (Emirates ID) will link the visa medical tests at nine Preventive Medicine Centres (PMCs) in Sharjah with the registration of national ID cards, it was announced yesterday.
Emirates ID earlier announced that the deadline for expatriates in Sharjah to apply for national ID cards is on January 31, 2012. Those who fail to secure their ID cards will be levied a Dh20 fine per day, going up to a maximum of Dh1,000 from February 1, 2012 onwards.

Sharjah will be the sixth emirate to link the visa processing and ID card registration. Dubai is expected to complete the link up by early next year, a spokesman of Emirates ID told Gulf News yesterday. The Dubai link up will complete the visa-national ID integration project. Once completed, an estimated 22,000 people are expected to register for national ID cards per day, taking the number of registrations to half a million a month.

Nine ID card registration centres — Ghubaiba, Nasiriyah, Kalba, Sharjah Industrial Area, Khor Fakkan, Al Dhaid, Dibba Al Hosn, Hamriyah Free Zone and Free Zone in Sharjah International Airport — will be linked to Preventive Medicine Centres (PMCs) conducting visa medical tests.
Visa applicants must first apply for the ID card and present the Emirates ID receipt when going for their medical tests.
They have to first complete the Emirates ID pre-registration process — filling up the form, payment of the fee and booking an appointment for registration — at an accredited typing centre before going for the visa medical test. After completing the medical test, an applicant goes to the national ID card registration section where their fingerprints and photograph will be taken.
New procedure
Emartech , the company responsible for managing the electronic forms and printing offices has completed training their staff on the new procedure.
Most typing centres in Sharjah were also oriented on the new procedures.
Applicants need not to be present at the typing centre when filling up the e-application form. They have to however, show the original passport and e-application form at the ID card registration centres at the PMCs.
Those renewing their national ID cards will also have to bring their expired card.
Dates to remember
The deadline for Emiratis across the country to apply for or renew ID card expired on October 31. All expatriates were also given an October 31 deadline to renew their expired cards. Cardholders, except children under 15 years, are given 30 days to renew their cards from the date of expiry.
Deadline for expatriates in Sharjah to apply for ID card is January 31. May 31, 2012 is the deadline for the expatriates in Dubai to apply for ID cards. The deadline for expatriates in Ajman , Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah is on November 30, and March 31 in Abu Dhabi.
There will be a fine of Dh20 fine per day, gong up to a maximum of Dh 1000 (one thousand) after the deadline.
All children under 15 years of age, Emiratis and expatriates, are exempted from the fines until October 1, 2012.
