Fines: Are They Effective?

10 July 10, 2018: Fines – are they effective? Will the threat of a fine for rubbernecking or spitting out gum, stop you from doing this?

Motorists caught rubbernecking will be fined 1000 dirhams according to new traffic laws that have come into effect. The updated law includes 19 new offences and existing violations have been amended.

The Dubai Municipality, posted on Twitter, that anyone caught throwing gum on the road or their cups of karak chai will be fined 500 dirhams.

One must be aware that chewing gum in Dubai Metro or the platform and Dubai buses isn’t allowed and you can be fined if caught. Spitting in a public place can cost Dh1,000 in fine.
