The city of Addis Ababa has implemented a system of fines to discourage littering and promote responsible use of public infrastructure. Residents caught dumping trash in unauthorized areas can face penalties of up to 100,000 birr.

The fines are even higher, up to 300,000 birr, for people who intentionally damage or block equipment used to maintain roads, like snowplows. Pedestrians are also expected to stay on designated walkways, with fines of 1,000 birr for those who stray from the marked paths.

The city has already taken action against some violators. Some businesses were fined between 20,000-100,000 birr for illegal dumping. Drivers who obstructed road maintenance vehicles were hit with penalties between 150,000-300,000 birr. And over 10 individuals were cited for walking outside the pedestrian areas.

The Addis Ababa mayor’s office is using these fines to send a clear message that residents need to take care of the city’s infrastructure and public spaces. By following the rules and staying in the proper areas, citizens can avoid penalties and help keep Addis Ababa clean, green, and safe for everyone.
