(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Many tourists from other GCC countries driving down to enjoy the monsoon in Dhofar often find themselves on the wrong side of the law. The reason: Luggage in the rear rack hiding their vehicle's number plate from view. 

According to the ROP a vehicle's licence plates should be visible at all times.

An ROP official said that according to the law both front and rear number plates should be always visible. 'Obscuring the number plates will attract a fine' he warned.

'Luggage carriers at the back of a vehicle aren't illegal but motorists should move the rear number plate onto the carrier so that it is visible' an ROP official said.

Abdullah Suaidan from the UAE in Oman for a two week stay in Salalah said he has repositioned the number plate.

'I am travelling with my family and there isn't enough room in the car for the luggage so we are using a roof rack and a rear luggage carrier. Another family from the UAE whom I met at a Barka filling station warned me about the fine. The next thing I did was get the plate attached to the rear luggage rack at a workshop' he said.

Suaidan said officers at the border should advise visitors from other GCC countries on these matters.

'I also found out that it is illegal to drive around with a dirty car in the sultanate. Dhofar is slushy at this time of the year  so I will make sure to wash my car before leaving Salalah' he added.

An expatriate requesting anonymity said 'An ROP personnel alerted me against obscured number plates. To avoid fines I always make sure that both registration plates on my vehicle are clearly visible.'
