Visitors to Dubai's Kite Beach risk fines of Dh300 if they use bicycles or e-scooters on the jogging track and boardwalk.

Signs at the popular seaside destination inform people of the possible fines they could incur.

The move came after authorities in the emirate confirmed the use of e-scooters was banned in public parks.

There are only five locations in Dubai that officially allow the use of electric devices, as the government carries out a year-long trial to assess their safety.

The designated e-scooter areas are Downtown Dubai’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai Internet City, 2nd of December Street, Al Rigga and Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

The use of e-scooters anywhere else in Dubai is strictly forbidden by the authorities and can lead to offenders being stopped by police.
