A total of 274 violations were issued by the Dubai Police against watercraft owners and users since the beginning of this year.

According to Colonel Saeed Al Madhani, director of the ports police station, they have issued 228 violations against jet skis and 46 violations against private and tourist watercraft.


Col Al Madhani said the violations issued against jet skis owners were due to several reasons - expiration of the license, entry into prohibited places such as swimming areas and hotel beaches, as well as non-compliance with the specified timings for the use of jet skis from sunrise to sunset.

He said that most violations were recorded near Jumeirah and Al Mamzar beaches, stressing that a Dh1,000 fine applicable for operating an expired vessel, and a Dh2,000 fine for operating a jet ski outside the permitted timings.

Colonel Al Madhani urged jet ski users to abide by laws and ensure the availability of safety equipment such as life jackets as not wearing such is punishable by law with a Dh3,000 fine.

He further noted that beachgoers must be careful not to approach private and tourist ships and should adhere to specified speeds that do not exceed five to seven nautical miles or overload the marine craft.

Colonel Al Madhani remained beachgoers that (Sail Safely) feature on Dubai Police app allows users to track the cruise's journey; warn them about any delays during the trip; identify hazards; send distress requests directly to the Dubai Police, and facilitate rapid emergency response.
Monday, August 31, 2020 – Another week, another amazing performance from Big Tech – Rinse, repeat.  For the past few months, we have witnessed an overall lagging economy that hasn’t quite recovered from Covid-19 become outshined and simply forgotten by market’s major indices, as the technology sector continues its ultra-impressive run.  This same pattern has recurred since the March 23rd low in the Dow Jones, which has now rallied over 10,000 points in a little over 5 months’ time.



This week, the Dow Jones Industrial closed at 28,653.87, the S&P 500 closed at 3,508.01 and the Nasdaq Composite closed at 11,695.63, which were weekly gains of 2.6%, 3.3% and 3.4% respectively. The Nasdaq and S&P both closed at all-time highs this week and the Dow Jones is not far off it’s all time high. The usual suspects were from the tech sector; FAANG and its large-cap contemporaries rallied the major indices again, with one of these companies, Salesforce.com Inc (CFM), claiming a spot in the sacred Dow Jones Index, replacing long-time constituent Exxon Mobile (XOM), which has been in the index since 1928.


However, the technology sector was not the only noteworthy story this week, as the Federal Reserve’s Chairman, Jerome Powell, revealed a plan that emphasized low interest rates in the future, even with an inflation increase. Mr. Powell noted the Fed’s new focus on handling inflation will be “informed by our assessments of shortfalls of employment from its maximum level, rather than by deviations from it’s maximum level.”  As the Fed becomes less dependent on manipulating inflation based on jobs reports, this news signaled to investors that the Fed will not be intervening and, for the foreseeable future, will let the economy recover the way it has for the past few months without getting in the way.
