Dubai motorists to be rewarded with discounts on fines
Careful Dubai motorists will be eligible for discounts on traffic fines, according to local media reports.
As part of the new initiative launched earlier in 2019, motorists who have successfully complied with traffic laws and regulations from February 2019 will be able to have their fines reduced or waived.
“We cannot waste the efforts of a person who has been committed to six months since the initiative was launched in February, and is about to get a 50 percent discount on irregularities because of a minor violation,” Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri was quoted as saying by Emarat Al Youm.
Those who are free of traffic violations for the first three months will be able to obtain discounts of 25 percent on their accumulated fines, while those who go six months will be able to get half the fines waived off.
The discounts rise to 75 percent for those with no violations for nine months from February 2019, and waived completely for 12 months.
