To keep a city sparkling clean is not an easy task.Now the residents along with authorities have come together for this endeavour.
Residents of Dubai are well aware that the city is a stickler for rules – for their own good – and violating it might cost them dearly on their pockets.
So, if one is visiting Dubai as a tourist or are a resident, it would be preferable to know the local rules.
Dubai Municipality on their website has listed offences and the fines payable. Throwing waste on the streets, urinating in facilities not designated for such purposes, spitting in public, can invite a fine of Dh500 in Dubai.
A fine of Dh10,000 is payable if one don’t take the required step for preventing the leakage or flow of wastewaters from the building or the falling of the same from tankers on the general.
With summer approaching, one should take care of their air conditioner water does not leak on pavements or roads, if so they are also liable to pay fine.
Chewing gum in Dubai Metro or the platform and Dubai buses isn’t allowed and one can be fined if caught.If one is caught spitting out their gum in public place can cost Dh1,000 in fine.
One particular offence – “Disposing of wastewater in any manner in the open places or in places other than designated by the competent and concerned authorities” could make one poorer by Dh100,000.
