Staff inspectors use smart devices in monitoring and recording all environment violations.

The department of public works in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah has offered a 30 per cent discount on all fines imposed for environmental violations to mark the 48th UAE National Day.

The discount offer, available till the end of this year, is in line with the Year of Tolerance, pointed out Ahmad Al Hammadi, director-general of the department.

"However, this discount is not applicable on heavy truck drivers nabbed while escaping from the truck weigh stations." The discount is applicable on all violations registered before the launch of this initiative, he added in a statement issued on Tuesday.

"Records show that the staff inspectors have issued 11,373 tickets against a host of environmental violations across the emirate from the beginning of this year."

Staff inspectors use smart devices in monitoring and recording all environmental violations, he said.

"These smart devices help detect and video record any violation immediately in the smart system which automatically sends an SMS to the mobile phone of the erring person involved showing its type, place, and time."

More inspection raids have been launched recently at different parts of the emirate, particularly natural sites, valleys, and mountains, he added.

"These natural sites, mainly at Jebel Jais, public beaches, Corniche Road, and along the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, become tourist hubs for the people from all over the country."

The judicially-empowered 74 staff inspectors keep an eye on all these sites on 55 patrols to ensure their cleanliness and serenity, Al Hammadi underlined.

The public are urged to show cooperation with the department 'Raqib' (or 'Monitor') patrols, he advised.

"Illegal and anti-environment practices need to be immediately reported to the department free hotline (8008118) or via our smart app 'Kolona Rakib' - 'We All Monitor' - to preserve the aesthetic image of the emirate."

Back in March, the department of public works, RAK, had offered a 30 per cent discount on all environmental violations to mark the Happiness Day.
