Decorate your car for Gulf Cup final - but obey the law: Oman police

Muscat: Fans who plan on supporting Oman’s national team in the finals of the Arabian Gulf Cup by decorating their cars can now do so, provided they are in accordance with Royal Oman Police’s guidelines.

The ROP this morning issued a set of rules regarding the attachment of posters and stickers that supporters might put on their cars ahead of Oman’s game against the UAE, which is set to begin tomorrow evening at 9pm Oman time.

“Posters are limited to those that express the encouragement of Oman football team,” announced the ROP on its official Twitter handle. “Stickers should not be pasted on front, side and rear windows of the vehicle. It should also not cover the number plate of the vehicle.”

Posters and stickers are allowed to be displayed on vehicles from January 4 to 15.

“Authorised stickers are restricted to images and phrases related to the occasion and supporting the national team,” added the ROP.

For sedans, posters can be affixed to the car body and the rear window, a rule that also applies to four-wheel drives, which can also features posters on the side windows towards the back of the vehicle.

Posters attached to vehicles must be well affixed, must not reach the vehicle's front window, or the frontal side windows on either side, the vehicle's headlight, or its licence plates. Stickers on the back window must be see-through from the inside.

The posters and stickers must not be made from unattached or easily removable fabrics, especially on the vehicle's front hood, no inappropriate or offensive phrases must be printed, and all affixed posters and stickers must not affect the colour or shape of the vehicle, or go against existing road safety regulation.
