The UAE is cool with your suped-up ride
The Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) – an international trade association of different manufacturers, distributors, retailers, custom-car builders, car clubs, race teams and more, and also host of the largest aftermarket trade show in the world. What does this mean for UAE car aficianados? You might not be getting hassled for having a modified car in the near future.
The MOU basically states that a set of guidelines and regulations would be developed to allow owners of properly and safely modified cars to be driven on public roads… kind of like how owners of choppers (a.k.a. custom bikes) are given free reign to drive on the road without any hassle from the police. The ultimate goal is to bring the government and the aftermarket industry closer and to set standards for what is allowed and what isn’t. To the rest of the Arab world, please follow suit!
