Free parking in most of Dubai for Israa and Miraj holiday
DUBAI // Parking in most areas of Dubai will be free on Saturday, a national holiday marking the Prophet’s Ascension Day, according to the Roads and Transport Authority.
The parking yard of the Fish Market and the multi-level parking is excluded from the free parking to provide slots for users. “This step is taken as part of RTA’s endeavour to offer smooth mobility to residents and visitors of the emirate during holidays,” said Ahmed Hasan Mahboub, RTA’s director of customer service. “This gesture is a practical demonstration of RTA’s vision of providing safe and smooth transport for all by providing every means to ease the mobility of motorists during official holidays and religious events.”
Motorists were urged not to park vehicles on pavements or block the movement of other vehicles since this would invoke fines, the RTA statement said.
