Ajman: Motorists who don’t commit traffic offences for six months, starting January 2019, will get a 50 per cent discount on their accumulated traffic fines, thanks to a new initiative from Ajman Police.
Major General Shaikh Sultan Bin Abdullah Al Nuaimi, Commander-in-Chief of Ajman Police, said the new initiative is part of the Year of Tolerance and will help drivers get discounts on their traffic fines, while encouraging them to drive more responsibly in future.
The discount will include all fines in the traffic file over the past year.
Dubai Police has announced an initiative offering discounts up to 100 per cent on accumulated traffic fines provided the drivers won’t commit fresh traffic violations from February 6. Here are the ten things you should keep in mind to avail the discount.
If you don’t commit a traffic offence from February 6 for three months: you will get a 25 per cent discount on previous accumulated traffic fines
If you don’t commit a traffic offence from February 6 for six months: you will get a 50 per cent discount on previous accumulated traffic fines
If you don’t commit a traffic offence from February 6 for nine months: you will get a 75 per cent discount on previous accumulated traffic fines
If you don’t commit a traffic offence from February 6 for 12 months: you will get a 100 per cent discount on previous accumulated traffic fines
Dubai Police will keep a record and you can benefit from the discount when renewing the car registration or when you decide to pay your fines.
Parking and Salik fines are not included in the discount.
The discount will apply to the seizure of vehicles and traffic points, reducing the cost to get your car out of the pound, and reducing the number of black points you get for an offence.
This initiative only applies to individuals who own vehicles registered in Dubai.
The discount does not apply to drivers who reside outside the country for more than three consecutive months from the date of the traffic violation.
The discount does not apply to vehicles registered to private companies, rental offices and public or private transport companies.
