UAE residents have been warned not to throw any litter from their vehicles to avoid fines, amounting to Dh1,000 and six black points.

The anti-littering rule is not restricted to large items and will be applicable to tissue papers, aluminum cans or even a cigarette butt.

According to the recently updated Traffic Law, polluting the UAE’s roads will be considered a federal offense, and the penalty will be enforced across all the seven emirates.
