Police have warned residents who are planning to celebrate the 47th National Day this year that car decals must only decorate cars between November 25 and December 6, or they risk a fine.

Abu Dhabi Police said that decals and decorations also must not obstruct the vision of the driver in any form, flagpoles are not to be installed on vehicles, number plates must not be blurred or covered and that residents should not "change the vehicle's original paint colour", Wam reported.

Brigadier Khalifa Mohammed Al Khaili, director of the Traffic and Patrols Directorate, called on members of the public to adhere to the rules and enhance the spirit of love for the homeland while respecting the law.

Al Khaili also said that drivers and passengers should not use confetti sprays, overcrowd vehicles, stick their bodies out of windows or ride on top of vehicle roofs.

The use of camels and horses on public roads is also prohibited.
