Ang pagkakalat sa Dubai sa pamamagitan ng pagtatapon ng cigarette butts o pagdura sa daan ay mahigpit na ipinagbabawal sa Dubai. The dirty habit of smokers in Dubai won’t go out in a puff anytime soon, but their remnants might.

Dubai Municipality has launched a campaign to ward off smokers from littering the streets with cigarette ends, in a bid to maintain the city’s cleanliness.

Violators who fail to stub out their cigarettes in designated areas and throw them on sidewalks and pavements may face a hefty Dh500 fine.

Dubai Municipality will take strict action against those who litter, whether they are driving on the roads or walking in parks and commercial areas.

If caught by municipality inspectors, the fine will double, then triple for each repeated offence.

Kasalukuyan, mayroong 154 inspectors nakatalaga sa Waste Management Department ng Dubai Municipality, na autorisadong magpataw ng fine sa mahuhuling nagkakalat.

In 2016, as many as 2939 fines were issued for littering in public places in Dubai.

In addition, spitting in public places in Dubai can also incur a fine of Dh500.

“While the campaign targets people who throw cigarettes and other pieces of paper, we are also trying to stop other unhygienic habits of people who spit on the road,” said Abdul Majeed Saifaie, director of the waste management department at Dubai Municipality.

The awareness is to maintain the aesthetic appearance of Dubai; it is also a cleaning issue to keep the cigarette butts in its rightful bin.
