An extra licence plate attached to the bicycle carrier in a car.
Gulf Today, Staff Reporter
Abu Dhabi Police launched a new initiative whereby an additional number plate will be placed on the base of the bicycle holder at the boot or the trunk of vehicles carrying bicycles.
This is done with the aim of avoiding blocking the vehicle plate, which is a traffic violation that entails the imposition of a fine, as part of its efforts to enhance road safety and it would spare the owners of vehicles carrying bicycles from committing traffic violations.
Colonel Muhammad Al-Buraik Al-Amri, Director of the Drivers and Vehicles Licensing Directorate in the Central Operations Sector, confirmed that this initiative comes from the keenness and interest of Abu Dhabi Police to support environmental initiatives and bicycle users by educating drivers and avoiding traffic violations.
He pointed out that Article No. 27 (b) of Ministerial Resolution No. 178 of 2017 regarding traffic control rules and procedures clarifies the penalty for perpetrators of acts that may lead to “unclear vehicle plate numbers” with a fine of Dhs400.
