The Dubai Police have confiscated 348 cars and 108 motorcycles for violating traffic laws such as heavily modifying cars with power boosters to increase the engine speed, and being a nuisance to residents.

Brigadier Abdullah Khadim Sorour, Director of Bur Dubai Police Station, said the traffic campaign, which they launched last month in coordination with the General Department of Traffic, is aimed at ensuring road security and reducing the number of traffic injuries and related deaths, apart from protecting properties and holding violators accountable for their reckless actions.

Brig. Sorour explained that it was very likely that drivers lose control when driving heavily modified cars, especially if engine modifications were made in a way that did not match the type of vehicle or roads. He also indicated that modified vehicle accidents could be deadly and result in the deaths of innocent people and other road users.

He also reminded that engine modifications or changes to a vehicle’s base or chassis without authorisation are subject to a Dh1,000 fine and 12 black points. In addition, the vehicle will also be impounded for 30 days. “These penalties may be intensified depending on the case,” Brig. Sorour confirmed.

“These penalties are necessary because it takes only one driver to kill many or cause severe damage to other vehicles and the infrastructure. Modified cars give a false sense of control to the driver so they think their vehicle has enough power and speed to dangerously overtake others and perform risky stunts,” he continued.

Brig. Sorour pointed out that Dubai Police have launched many safety awareness campaigns to raise awareness among the community on heavily modified vehicles, especially among the youth, confirming that additional accessories do not fit properly in many vehicles.

Brig. Sorour stressed that road safety is everyone’s responsibility. “Together, we must unify efforts and maintain the safety and security of our roads,” he urged.
