Dubai: Women in the capital are encouraged to take advantage of the female-only parking spaces that can be found in various areas of Abu Dhabi city.
Since 2016, as many as 182 pink spaces were installed in multi-storey car parks to help women find parking spaces easier, which also provides them with some privacy.
The Department of Transport explained that the pink parking spaces reserved exclusively for women can be found on Hamdan Street behind Liwa Centre, which has 26.
The traffic authority also installed 18 in the corniche area, 28 on Fatima Bint Mubarak Street, 18 behind the Abu Dhabi Health Authority, 26 on Liwa Street, 25 behind Al Noor Hospital on Khalifa Street, and 41 in Al Dana area.
Mawaqif inspectors regularly monitor the pink parking spaces to ensure that they are not used by men, and warned that offenders will be slapped with a Dh500 for fine and have their vehicles impounded.
