I am wondering because it would make much sense if you actually got fined if you walked under the gate with the tag because it would mean that they don't check what the camera has got, so it means you can carry and use the tag in any car without sticking it.

Oh lol what Inline6 said reminded me of a small incident with my friend.

He has a bike and he called the Salik hotline and speaks to this agent.

Friend: I have a problem. I have a bike and do we have to put Salik also because I don't have a windshield on my bike or anything so where do I put it?
Agent: Sir at the moment we don't have anythin for bikes but we will do something about bikes very soon insh'Allah.

LOL my friend hung up on his face .. haha!

Hehehe ... funny thread :P

i've tried sticking it behind the tint and it used to work just fine. On the dashboard it works and also on different cars :P i stopped the different car thingy after i heard you could get fined AED10,000 for it???

now i wouldn't be surprised if someone came here asking if they could cut the sticker in half and use it in 2 cars ? :D

I've been either holding it to my windshield as I go, or plopping it on my dash board (still haven't decided where to stick it), and have yet to receive a fine. Been working perfectly so far. I'm leaning towards my sun roof but I'll just have to be careful when the cooler weather comes around and not forget about it when it's open :P.

I just hate that ugly tag sooo much!

you can even stick it with some temporary adhesive, Faber Castell "Tack" would work i guess, but its opaque...

then you can change its position as per the weather :D

Cheers...

mind is stick in the left upper corner of the windshield... no problem at all.. looks better also.. just like normal gate's sticker...

the other one i stick in a plastic id so it will not be damaged.. and everytime I pass thru salik.. .. i just hold agains the windshield and keep after... that looks.. better also ... and so far no problem at all...

also i just pass my car a 1993 honda civic with 7 point roll cage on it... no problem at all.. :P

The person who can answer all your questions is Bacha and same1. Bacha works for customer service and Same1 is working in financial department of Salik. I am surprised why they both arent helping in here. Anyways you ppl cannot use same tag in different cars. why??? ask Bacha or Same1, they can breif you on it :happy:
