Motorists in Abu Dhabi have been urged to follow rules during the country’s 51st National Day celebrations and parades.

Police said people will be allowed to decorate their vehicles appropriately to mark the occasion, from November 28 to December 6, but all decorations must be removed after this period.

Those who fail to do so will be penalised, although authorities did not reveal the fine amounts.

The force outlined 14 rules that must be adhered to by motorists during parades and celebrations.

These include not using spray paint on cars, not obstructing traffic or parking in undesignated areas.

People cannot change the colour of their vehicles, over-tint their car window glass, or obscure licence plates.

It said inappropriate writing and stickers on vehicles are not allowed and urged people to avoid taking part in random crowding and parades.

Riding horses or camels on roads is not permitted.
