The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai has announced that it will stop issuing all paper parking violations from Sunday, March 28, as part of the emirate’s drive for government entities to go paperless in line with its digitisation strategy.

The authority asked vehicle owners in the emirate to update their details by calling the RTA’s customer service numbers.

“Starting Sunday, March 28, all paper parking violations will stop, and you will receive paperless violations via SMS and email instead, in a new, more environmentally friendly way," RTA said in a post on Twitter.

"Please make sure to update your mobile number and email in your traffic file by calling 8009090,” it added.

Dubai public entities are set to go 100 per cent paperless by the end of this year.
