Abu Dhabi Municipality made about 180 people cough up Dh1,000 for spitting last year, while 352 were fined for dropping cigarette ends.

A spokesman for the municipality said spitting on the streets is a violation of the health and hygiene rules. “It’s not only restricted to spitting betel leaves [paan] and neswar [tobacco] but all kinds of spitting,” The National quoted him as saying.

Fines for anyone caught spitting in public were increased in 2015 to Dh1,000 from Dh200, the report said.
