Motorcyclists have been driving fast and loudly outside their windows after midnight, according to residents of one of Dubai’s most well-known communities. This causes them to suffer through countless sleepless nights.  

According to Brig Suwaidan, the Dubai Police have been actively pursuing loud vehicle targets. The police recorded 2,361 offences in 2022 against drivers who altered their cars to make loud sounds. During that period, 1,079 vehicles were impounded by the force. 

A fine of Dh2,000 and the issuance of 12 black points are the consequences for violating noise level limits while driving. If riders alter their bikes, they will be fined Dh1,000. Also they will be given 12 traffic points, and have their vehicles seized for 30 days. 

For the majority of Dubai, the acceptable noise level at night is 30 to 40 decibels and between 7am to 8pm the level is 40 to 50 decibels. Brig Suwaidan has urged people to help the police by calling 901 and reporting such nuisance.
