Dubai Police’s discount scheme on traffic fines has been discontinued and motorists now need to pay the total amount of traffic fines incurred.
The initiative announced in February 2019 allowed motorists to get discounts on fines incurred, provided they didn’t commit any other traffic-related offence in the meanwhile.
In February 2020, Dubai Police extended the initiative, offering discounts of up to 100 per cent on accumulated traffic fines provided to drivers who did not commit any fresh traffic violation.
Dubai Police’s call centre said that the discount scheme ended in March 2020 during the national sterilisation programme, when motorists were allowed to renew their car registration without the need to clear their traffic fines.
“There currently aren’t any discounts on fines. Thank you for contacting us,” Dubai Police tweeted in reply to a Dubai motorist who had sought clarification on the discount scheme for traffic fines.
