Abu Dhabi Police issued a warning to motorists against tampering, blackouts, and amendment of number plates, as they may face referral to the Attorney General or seize the car until payment of the release fee of 50 thousand dirhams.
Abu Dhabi Police announced this in a tweet:
Driving a vehicle with a forged or invisible number plate, or making any changes or using it in a way that does not comply with the applicable legislation and the driver’s knowledge.
Although the violation does not attract traffic points, the confiscated vehicles will be auctioned after a maximum of three months if they are not claimed.
Violators face the Public Prosecution Office and a fee of 50 thousand dirhams to release the seized vehicle.
