Abu Dhabi Police have advised motorists not to cover the plate numbers with a bike rack or any other objects.

Violators will get a fine of Dhs400 according to the federal traffic law.

The police stated that Article 27 (b) of the Federal Traffic Law stipulates that the perpetrators of acts that may lead to "lack of clarity of vehicle licence plate numbers" will be fined Dhs400.

Traffic control will be intensified and legal action will be taken against vehicles with plate numbers blocked from public view.

Last month, in a public announcement video, the Abu Dhabi Police warned about the risks posed by illegally transporting passengers and the negative repercussions on their safety and security, while warning drivers of private vehicles from transporting passengers without a licence.

The police also urged the public to use official and licensed means of transportation that comply with international safety standards, as well as to cooperate in discouraging illegal transportation and improving security and community awareness by refraining from using such vehicles.

It then stressed that it will continue its joint campaigns with the Integrated Transport Centre Abu Dhabi, as its strategic partner to detect violators.
