UAE: 50% discount on traffic fines ends in these emirates today
The schemes were announced to mark the occasion of the 49th UAE National Day last year.
Several emirates in the UAE had announced a 50 per cent reduction in traffic fines on the occasion of the country's 49th National Day on December 2, 2020. The scheme ends in two emirates today, January 15.
Ajman Police had originally announced that the emirate's discount scheme would run for a month from National Day. However, on December 30, the authority extended the date, noting that violators would now be able to avail the offer till January 15.
The discount would be applicable on all types of fines for violations committed in the emirate before November 23.
However, it will not apply to serious traffic offences, such as:
> Reckless driving that endangered people’s lives
> Unauthorised vehicle modifications
> Violations of Covid-19 precautionary measures
Discounted fines can be paid at Ajman Poice service centres, Sahl smart kiosks, the Ministry of Interior app and the police app.
In November, Fujairah Police too announced a welcome 50 per cent discount on all traffic fines across the emirate to mark the 49th UAE National Day.
The scheme is slated to end today, on January 15, as originally announced.
The reduction will apply to traffic violations registered before December 1. It will cover all kinds of vehicles and traffic violations.
The authority has noted that all black points will also be cancelled and vehicle impoundment penalties waived.
