Dubai Police have warned they will impound cars if drivers stop on main roads at midnight to watch New Year’s Eve fireworks, it was reported on Monday.

“Any car will be impounded if found stopped on the side of main roads such as Shaikh Zayed Road for the driver and passenger to watch the fireworks and celebrations at Burj Khalifa,” Colonel Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Deputy Director of Dubai Police Traffic Department, was quoted as saying by the Gulf News.

The warning came as Dubai Police said they plan to put 400 police patrols in place to monitor the New Year's Eve celebrations this year.

Patrols will start at 2pm on Monday and continue until midnight, the report added. Colonel Al Mazroui urged drivers to avoid the Burj Kahalifa area in the run up to the fireworks display, adding that a million visitors are expected to watch the celebrations.
