An Abu Dhabi court has ordered a woman to pay for 15 traffic violations that she committed with a car registered to her ex-husband.

>> Woman fined Dh95,000 for UAE traffic offences she didn't commit

According to a report in Emarat Al Youm, the man filed a lawsuit demanding that his ex-wife pay Dh7,290 with a legal interest of 9% from the claim date until full payment.

He claimed that he had provided his ex-wife with a car based on a court ruling at the time of their separation. However, she committed traffic violations of the claimed amount and he was compelled to pay for the violations, since the car was still under his name.

The defendant, however, did not pay him back for the traffic offences she committed.

The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance stated that, based on evidence, the defendant was found guilty of committing 15 traffic violations worth Dh3,425 — and that she is solely responsible for these since the car was in her possession at the time.
