Keep away from violations this weekend

Keep away from violations this weekend

Most awaited weekend is here and almost all of us would be buzzing with plans to keep us happily busy today and tomorrow.

While malls and restaurants are common places to hang out among both the citizens and residents of this country, parks too remain a favourite destination especially for families.

Qatar has its own share of parks with a new one being opened quite often. In fact, recently a new public park was opened in Al-Khor with a separate mini zoo in it.

While more on the new Al-Khor Park can be read in our news post, here’s what Baladiya has to say about using public parks.

According to Baladiya, parks should be made use of with a lot of responsibility. It also has mentioned in one of its recent tweets that throwing waste in parks, littering beaches and public places is a violation with a penalty of QR100.

Likewise, leaving neglected vehicles in roads, public places and sidewalks has a penalty of QR500.

Also, not using the protective covers of the means of transportation tightly is another violation with a penalty of QR600.

Hence, enjoy your weekend responsibly and keep away from violating ministry rules and gaining a penalty!

Perhaps a better 'deterrent" would be to make them pick it up and dispose in a proper place

Yesterday evening came to Aspire park with my wife for a walk... Big family in a big expensive SUV was driving out from the parking. Rear window opened and a smiling boy 8-10 years old throw through it empty plastic bottle and a tissue... He closed the window and was laughing from our surprised reaction... These people must be fined hard to learn to keep their land clean...

If you fine people heavily , they will think twice. Education is also neccessary, but most of these people know that what they're doing is wrong..
