UAE: Don't leave car engines running as you pray Taraweeh
Vehicles are prone to theft, police warn.
Police have urged worshippers not to leave their cars with engines running at parking lots of mosques, as they go for Taraweeh prayers during the Holy month of Ramadan, because vehicles are prone to theft.
The police said some worshippers have a tendency of leaving their car engines running and unattended when they enter mosques to perform Taraweeh prayers, which can be a risky proposition.
In March, UAE Public Prosecutors cited a case, where a motorist’s vehicle was stolen after he had parked it near a grocery shop in Abu Dhabi to buy some items and left the engine running.
He found his vehicle missing upon his return.
Besides, the risk of theft, vehicles left running are prone to catch fire especially during summer months.
Police have urged worshippers to comply with traffic rules and avoid parking randomly
near mosques during Taraweeh prayers.
