Abu Dhabi has a passed a new scheme to introduce paid parking in public areas from 18th August 2018. For people to get used to this, it’s giving a three week grace period where people will not be fined.
What Is It?
The capital of the country is rolling out paid parking in a majority of areas in the city. It will be launched in a total of 42 areas, including Maqta bridge, Sheikh Zayed bridge, Mussaffah bridge and the Corniche. Which means residents across Abu Dhabi will now have to pay for parking spots. This is going to come in effect from 18th August 2018. But the good news is, the government will not fine motorists violating the new law for a period of three weeks to ensure the residents get used to the changes.
