The Year of the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The Year of the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Ah, Twitter, the Mecca of tolerance and Totalitarianism of our generation.

Taking full advantage of the Twitterverse these days is your friendly Dubai Municipality, reminding their visitors of fine-able offenses, now more than 140 characters at a time.

If you decide not to swallow your bubble gum (the scourge of young mothers and the Middle East), Allah and the Government forbid you spit it on the ground, because if you do you will be fined Dh 500 ($135).

Of course, just spitting in a public place can cost you Dh 1,000 ($270).

More Than Spitting

Done sipping your Beauty Community tea? Well, if you pitch that cup on the ground that will also be a Dh 500 ($135) fine.

Worried about what other things could you get into trouble in Dubai? In addition to their Twitter, you can find out more about the Year of Zayed and fine-able offenses on their website here.

You’re welcome.
