Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) has conducted a campaign to target the owners of abandoned vehicles in the emirate’s Mussafah and Mafraq industrial areas.

During the course of the initiative, which was conducted by ADM’s Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport, 180 warnings were served to the owners of vehicles left unattended for extended periods of time.

The campaign forms part of the municipality’s efforts to maintain Abu Dhabi’s landscape and preserve its environment.

The crackdown saw warnings issued to 160 owners of vehicles abandoned in Mussafah, and 20 to owners of vehicles left in Mafraq.

Violators were informed that fines would be imposed and their vehicles impounded if the offences were repeated.

The campaign is in keeping with Law No 2/2012, which governs the general appearance, health, and public tranquillity of Abu Dhabi. The revised executive regulation allows offence notices to be fixed to offending vehicles for just three days, as opposed to the previously stipulated two weeks, before removal can take place.

ADM has also called on community members who stay abroad for extended periods of time to cover their vehicles to avoid warnings and violations.

Vehicle owners who fail to take appropriate action may be fined up to (AED3,000) in the first instance. Should the offence recur, the amount will double and daily impounding fees will be applied.
