Dubai Police have announced earlier in February that motorists can avail of discounts on traffic fines during the Year of Tolerance. Drivers can get up to a 100% reduction on the total accumulated existing traffic fines.
The initiative was launched under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The police issued a reminder this June on social media reminding motorists to continue to abide by traffic rules to obtain the discount on their traffic violations. For example, The driver's compliance with traffic laws and regulations will be computed on 6 February 2019 with a (25%) reduction for every three months. If a driver commits an offence before the end of the period, he/she cannot benefit from the initiative, and the grace period is recounted from the date of the new violation.
if the value of accumulated traffic violations is Dh10,000, a reduction of 25% will be obtained and the driver pays Dh7,500. After six months, the motorist can pay Dh5,000 only, and if the driver did not commit any traffic violations for a year then the entire traffic violation amount will be waived.
Dubai Police statement said-"There is one and a half month to go, if you continue to adhere to the rules and do not commit any traffic violations, you can obtain a reduction of 50%".
As it’s written in Dubai Police’s Tweet, the discount rates are:
• Follow the rules for 3 months straight, get 25% off
• Follow the rules for 6 months straight, get 50% off.
• Follow the rules for 9 months straight, get 75% off.
• Follow the rules for a year straight; get an exemption from all accumulated fines.
Only a month and a half remains until the next milestone.
So if you’ve been following the rules and will continue to until August, you have the chance to get a 50% discount!
Sounds good to us.
