As many as 383 bikes and electric scooters were confiscated in Dubai in the first 18 days of Ramadan for breaking safety rules.

Dubai Police also issued more than 1,200 fines to reckless riders.

Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Operations Affairs, emphasised the importance of using designated lanes, wearing a helmet and reflective vest, equipping bikes with reflective lights and ensuring the brakes are working.

He also warned against riding against the flow of traffic and parking two-wheelers in non-designated areas.

Al Ghaithi urged the public to report dangerous behaviours and illegal activiites through the 'Police Eye' service via the Dubai Police app, or by calling the non-emergency number 901.
