The Dubai Police is keen to protect the environment in the UAE, he said.

Lt-Gen. Dhahi said that the concerned authority noted that some vehicles are throwing concrete, sand and waste on Dubai roads which disturb traffic flow.

Article No. 59 bans throwing or dumping of any waste in public places and prohibits solid or liquid items on roads, or carrying items which could be blown away by the wind without being covered.
