Back on February 15 of this year, the UAE announced the ease of all COVID-19 restrictions, including commercial venues returning to full capacity and scrapping social distancing in certain zones.
However, a few COVID-19 regulations remained in place such as mask-wearing in indoor public spaces and the three-a-car passenger rule.
And now, Lovin Dubai has official confirmation from the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), as well as Dubai Police that vehicles in Dubai can return to 100% capacity. This includes Dubai Taxis as well!
The three-a-car rule no longer applies, hence, there will be NO more penalties for sitting together with your squad once again.
But, HOLD UP! There’s a catch.
Passengers are still required to wear a face mask when sitting in a car
Family members, domestic help, second-degree relatives, and the driver (if driving ALONE) are exempted from the mask rule while inside the vehicle.
Motorists can be fined AED3,000 for not wearing a mask only once the cop inspects and verifies that passengers aren’t related to each other.
