Abu Dhabi cracks down on offensive car stickers

Police say any kind of sticker requires permission from the authorities.

Abu Dhabi Police have warned that anyone who sports "indecent logos or tattoos" on their vehicles will face legal action, UAE's state news agency WAM reported on Wednesday.

"To display any kind of sticker on vehicles requires permission. Anyone found brandishing sloguns or symbols infringing the religious and traditional values of our society will invite penalty," Col. Khamis Ishaq, Deputy Director of Traffic and Patrols, was quoted as saying.

"A road is a public right-of-way, and anyone who misuses it by way of behaving in an uncivilised way is violating the rights of others to live in a modest society," Ishaq added.

During the period from Mar. 1 and to Oct. 19, a total of 1,636 persons were fined by the police for displaying indecent stickers, logos or words on their vehicles, WAM said.

I agree totally for the offensive stickers. What about other stickers, which are just humourous and not offensive like "Baby in car", "Don't worry be happy", "New driver" (I wish it existed) or just the flag of the expat's country? What about "I'm single"? :)
