1000 AED Fine for Driving Vehicle without Face Mask in Dubai


Warnings will be issued to motorists who don’t wear masks while driving in Dubai, an official said on Tuesday.




According to Dubai Police, 233 warnings and five fines were issued for not wearing masks in enclosed places and failing to keep a safe distance.

Many drivers have received the warning tickets on their mobile phones with a message to adhere to the laws.




“We issued warning fines at the beginning for the public so that people wouldn’t claim that they didn’t know about the order,” he said. “If a person didn’t comply the order then a real fine will be issued.”



The fines will be issued to all drivers regardless of whether they are alone in the car or travelling with others.

Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Director of Traffic Department at Dubai Police, said the official spokesperson for the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), Dr Farida Al Hosani, had stressed the importance for everyone to wear masks even if you don’t have symptoms.

“We issued a circular on the importance of wearing masks inside cars,” said Al Mazroui. “Dubai Police issued warning fines to drivers who are not wearing masks while driving as part of the precautionary measures,” he added.

A warning fine is a warning which precedes a fine if the offence is repeated.
