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:

> 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.

Fujairah

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.
