Guidelines have been issued for people wishing to decorate their cars to celebrate the 46th National Day on December 2.

Motorists will be able to do so between November 22 and December 6, according to Abu Dhabi Police.

Car owners are not allowed to change a vehicle’s colour, add noisy accessories, obscure licence plates and cover the windscreen, said Brig Khalifa Al Khaili, director of Traffic and Patrols Directorate.

Drivers cannot carry more than the permitted number of people and passengers cannot stick any body part out of the vehicle’s windows or sunroof.
