New rules for parking tickets in Abu Dhabi

Drivers in Abu Dhabi have new parking rules to take into account.

The Integrated Transport Centre has announced that all parking bays in the capital need a valid Mawaqif ticket.

However, if you have paid for a premium space, you can also now park in a standard bay, as well. 

In addition, car owners are urged not to park their vehicles in prohibited areas or to block vehicles or traffic flow during Ramadan.

Free parking hours throughout Ramadan were recently announced by the Department of Transport.

And, those attending Tarawih prayers will be exempt from Mawaqif fees in parking bays surrounding mosques during prayer time as long as they do not block vehicles or traffic.

Offenders will have their vehicles towed and will be notified by SMS.
