Women-only Pink Parking Spaces in Abu Dhabi
This isn’t the first time, women-only pink parking spaces are being offered to female shoppers.
In order to ease the parking woes of women in Abu Dhabi, the Abu Dhabi Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport has assigned 182 parking bays for women, which are painted pink and white. The women-only pink parking spaces are located in multi-storey buildings and can’t be used by males. To ensure this, Mawaqif inspectors will be on duty, who would fine Dh500 to the offenders and impound their vehicles.
The locations of the parking bays include Hamdan Street behind Liwa Center (26 spaces); Corniche area (18 spaces); behind Trianon Hotel off Fatima bint Mubarak Street (28 spaces); behind Health Authority Abu Dhabi (18); on Liwa Street (26 spaces); behind Al Noor Hospital on Khalifa Street (25 spaces); and in Al Dana area, behind the offices of Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council (41 spaces).
This isn’t the first time, women-only pink parking spaces are being offered to female shoppers for their ease and convenience. Al Wahda Mall offered 80 free parking spaces in February 2017. However, this is the first of its kind by Abu Dhabi government.
