Discount on traffic fines, announced last October by the Sharjah Police, will continue until February 28, 2018.
Major Abdul Rahman Khater, Director of the Media and Awareness Department at Sharjah Police, urged vehicle owners and motorists to pay their discounted fines through the Ministry of Interior's app (MOI), or in all police stations, traffic police centres, traffic village (Tasjeel), in addition to the Police Service Centre at Sahara Mall.
Earlier in December, in the spirit of the UAE National Day and 'Year of Giving', His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, had directed the Ministry of Interior to coordinate with the traffic and licensing departments across the country to slash all traffic fines by 50 per cent.
The 50 per cent reduction in fines for all traffic offences and impoundment fees will be valid for traffic fines issued before December 2, 2017 nationwide.
The discounted fines will have to be paid within three months starting from the date of issuing the directives (December 1, 2017), after which the full value of the fines shall be charged.
According to the directives, motorists are strongly advised to comply with traffic rules and regulations and ensure the safety of life and property.
