Traffic police have announced strict rules on decorations of cars for the forthcoming National Day celebrations on December 18.

The new rules ban any posters on cars before the celebration days, Al Sharq reports. They also ban full posters on the windshields which could disrupt motorists’ visibility, posters to cover number plates or change the colour of vehicles, said Brigadier Mohammed Saad Al Kharji, Director of the department. “The motorist should also be visible inside the car and not hide behind the posters. Traffic police’s role will be to secure people’s lives and ensure there is smooth traffic to enable people to reach the areas were celebrations will be organised,” he said.

Police will also be on the roads to check cars that are over-decorated or violate traffic and safety rules. People are also banned from sitting on car windows or the roofs or front and rear parts of their vehicles or dancing in front of the vehicles as these would risk their lives during the parades. Stunt shows or blocking traffic on some roads will also not be allowed, he said. Patrols will deployed in all celebrations venues to ensure smooth traffic and enforce rules.
