Dubai: United Arab Emirates is known for its strict laws and authorities are very particular about their implementation. The latest rule would compel the citizens to keep their car clean.

As per the new rule, parking a dirty car on public roads could lead to a fine of Dh 500 which is over Rs 9000 in Indian currency.

In a tweet, Dubai Municipality said that such things can “tarnish the aesthetics appearance of the city”. The municipality inspectors have started identifying stranded cars and are sticking a notice on their windscreen. The notice allows the citizen 15 more days to clean their vehicles or they would tow away the cars.

Moreover, the vehicle will be auctioned by the municipality if the owner doesn’t contact them.
