Abu Dhabi Police reduces value of traffic fines by 50% for 3 months
Fines paid within 60 days of the traffic violation will be reduced by 35% as part of an Abu Dhabi Police initiative
The General Command of the Abu Dhabi Police has reduced the value of fines for traffic violations that have been committed before 22 December, 2019, by 50% for a period of three months, according to posts on the government entity’s official Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The General Command has also eliminated black points and penalties for impounded vehicles during the three-month period.
In addition, the Abu Dhabi Police has launched an initiative – which will be implemented effective 22 December, 2019 – to reduce the value of fines on traffic violations by up to 35% if the payment of penalties is made within 60 days of the violation date.
If the fine is paid after the 60-day period, but within a year from the date of violation, then a reduction of up to 25% is applicable on the value of the offense. After a year from the date of violation, no discounts will be applicable.
The Abu Dhabi Police also emphasised that the discounts are not applicable for accidents and other serious violations, including incidents being decided by the courts.
Commenting on the decision to offer discounts on traffic fines, the commander-in-chief of the Abu Dhabi Police, HE Major General Faris Khalaf Al Mazrouei, called on all drivers to take advantage of the decision and speed up the payment of their traffic violations during the specified period.
He also called on drivers to settle their legal status, reduce traffic violations, adhere to the systems and laws, and focus on their security and safety on the roads.
