Residents told not to leave vehicles in public parking
Campaign to raise awareness ahead of holidays
I am sure the authorities will soon realize the problems of common citizens and instead if selling their cars on auction, they will provide an alternate arrangement to address the issue. Before taking any action, alternates should be advised.

Rather than just keep issuing fines, can't there be some impound kind of huge parking lot which can be created somewhere in ras al khor for people to park their cars while going for vacation? This can be a covered parking or should allow owners to cover their cars when they are on vacation. This way, there wont be any dirty cars parked inside the city and also with a nominal charge of AED 10 or 15 per day, this would work out to be very efficient for the people going on leave and also not a free service for the Government. Most of my friends have building parkings which they have only for their cars. So how can I expect them to take care of my car also when I am not in station.
