Wash your new or used cars Dubai before Dubai Municipality cracks down on your dirty vehicle. Having an unclean vehicle will cost you more than disapproving glances.

Abdul Majeed Abdul Aziz Al Saifaie, the director of the waste municipality department said that the “First, the vehicle will be identified whether it meets the conditions, such as obstructing the city’s cleanliness, and then a violation notice will be issued by putting a warning sticker on the vehicle”.

According to the municipality department, car owners will be given three days before their car is impounded. Previously, the notice period was 14 days.

If the vehicle is not removed after three days, the municipality will tow it to protect the appearance of the city as they are not only an eye sore but also a cause of nuisance to others due to the accumulation of dust and waste.
