Dubai Police confiscate 1,097 cars for being too noisy in residential areas

Dubai Police have taken more than 1,000 cars off the streets in Dubai after they caused loud disturbances driving through residential areas.

Some of the cars had added boosters which made the car faster – and much louder.

The cars were all caught and taken off the streets by Dubai Police between February 11 and March 17.

And having been woken up by the sound of speeding cars at 3am, we very much agree with this!

Police warned they were also aiming to cut down reckless driving and cars performing stunts.

“Fining cars and motorbikes that cause [disturbances] aims to maintain road safety and to cut down the number of road deaths and casualties,” said Col Saif Al Mazrouei, Dubai’s traffic police chief.

Col Al Mazrouei also warned young people against “negative behaviour” including “blasting out music to draw attention, as this is considered a straight-out violation to the law”, he said.

The motorists who were fined and had their cars confiscated came from nine different nationalities.
