Re­move tem­po­rary paint coat­ing from car af­ter reach­ing des­ti­na­tion: ROP

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

The ROP has asked own­ers to re­move spe­cial paint coat­ings on their ve­hi­cles af­ter trav­el­ling to Dho­far and back.

Many own­ers get tem­po­rary paint coat­ings on their cars for pro­tec­tion against sand while trav­el­ling long dis­tances to reach the south­ern gov­er­norate.

“Many vis­i­tors drive down to Salalah from Mus­cat dur­ing the kha­reef sea­son. The dis­tance is around 1,000km. So, many own­ers get spe­cial coat­ings on their ve­hi­cles to pro­tect from sand. This quot­ing is tem­po­rary and can be re­moved eas­ily.

“How­ever, they need to en­sure that they don’t get the reg- is­tra­tion plates painted. The reg­is­tra­tion plates on front and rear of the ve­hi­cle must be clearly vis­i­ble from a dis­tance. Also, the spe­cial coat­ing must be of the same colour as that of the ve­hi­cle and should be re­moved af­ter reach­ing the des­ti­na­tion,” an ROP official said.

The ROP official said that those who keep driv­ing with the tem­po­rary coat­ing af­ter reach­ing the des­ti­na­tion are fined ac­cord­ingly. “No one likes to see scratch on their cars. The Mus­catSalalah route passes through cer­tain stretches hav­ing sand on both sides. So, these tem­po­rary spe­cial paints pro­tect your cars from sand. The paint must be re­moved af­ter reach­ing the des­ti­na­tion.”
