Drive against noisy vehicles begin.

Anti-vehicle and motorcycle modification campaign kicks off in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi: Traffic and Patrol Department in Abu Dhabi Police Department on Monday launched a campaign in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to catch vehicle drivers and motorcyclists who had violated the law by fixing some illegal car and motor modifications to amplify their sounds and to increase their speeds at expressways which endanger their lives and the lives of others.

Brigadier Hussein Ahmad Al Harthi, Director of Traffic and Patrol Department in Abu Dhabi Police Department, said: "Law does not allow such vehicles or motorcycles from using streets inside or outside the cities and their use is only limited on specific tracks that are authorized for this purpose."

Brig. Al Harthi added: "These vehicles and motorcycles should be transported to these specific tracks, and not driven, whatever the pretext is."

"Any violation will be taken seriously by the department as this campaign aims to orient people about the dangers of these modifications and the need to respect others' privacy by not endangering their lives and by averting from causing uneasiness to them by loud sounds," he warned.

"What the youngsters modify in their vehicles and motorcycles is a short way to death and is an improper conduct exercised in the wrong place," said Brig. Al Harthi.

"These modifications do not only lead to death and disabilities but also they lead to various environment pollution and noise pollution that reflect a bad image about our country and community," he explained.

He warned that such modifications are mostly carried out by non-professionals who lack basics of public safety.

"Due to lack of professionalism in fixing these extra parts or modifications, these vehicles or motorcycles are apt to explode due to any electric failure or in case of collision," warned Brig Al Harthi.

Abu Dhabi Police had also earlier carried out campaigns to combat begging and peddling, campaigns against drug trafficking, and it will start a campaign to orient dwellers to take their precautionary measures before traveling.
