Dubai traffic fine discount suspended


DUBAI – The traffic fine discount initiative in Dubai has been suspended, the Dubai Police announced on Monday.

The initiative, which began in February, had allowed motorists to avail of up to 100 percent discount on traffic fines incurred in Dubai.

Col. Juma Salim Bin Suwaidan, director-general of the traffic department at Dubai Police, said that as many as 557,430 motorists availed of traffic fine discounts.

Launched in February last year, the discount scheme encouraged drivers to have a good traffic record in order to avail of discounts in fines.

Motorists who had a good traffic record within three months after their last offence could get a 25 percent discount on fines.

Drivers who had no traffic violations within six months after their last offence could avail of a 50 percent discount. A 75 percent discount was given to those with a driving good record for nine months, while a 100 percent discount was given to those with a good driving record for a full year. ICA/Expat Media
