While unauthorized use of emergency lights on civilian vehicles is illegal in almost every part of the world, the enforcement against it may be rather ineffective. But not if you are in Dubai where local cops are cracking down on such unauthorized additions and have warned of stringent action against anyone guilty of doing so.

Gulf News recently reported that cops in Dubai are cracking down against those who have made use of emergency lights on their personal and private vehicles. The action was prompted after two vehicles were reportedly found making use of road privileges reserved for emergency vehicles. Both of these vehicles were stopped for checks and it was found that the emergency lights had been used without any form of authorization. Little surprise then that both of these vehicles were immediately impounded. The owners of these vehicles were also fined.
