Abu Dhabi Police called on drivers not to hide their licence plate data in any way, such as by carrying bicycles, or other items with which it is impossible to monitor plate numbers or distinguish the category and source.


The police stated that Article 27 (b) of the Federal Traffic and Traffic Law stipulates that the perpetrators of actions that may lead to "lack of clarity of vehicle plate numbers" will be fined a fine Dhs 400, and stressed the keenness to intensify traffic control and take legal measures in violation of any vehicle that does not comply with the clarification of numbers in accordance with the Federal Traffic and Traffic Law.


Last year, 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.
