The parking fine waivers come just a few days after the Sharjah Police announced the cancellation of all penalties for traffic violations that were recorded during the storm.


The UAE was hit by the heaviest rainfall it had seen in 75 years on April 16. The extension of 'low surface pressure' and two waves of unstable weather wreaked havoc across the country.

Seeking to bring relief to storm-hit residents, the Sharjah City Municipality has taken the decision to scrap parking fines.

Among the violations that are covered by the waiver are:

  • Non-payment of parking fees
  • Reserving more than one parking slot
  • Parking in reserved spots
