Motorists can pay off their fines through police apps and smart channels.
Dubai Police have offered various ways to make payments, which can be done either through the traffic department, police and car registration centers, in addition to kiosks in all commercial centers.
Fine payments can also be made online, through UAE bank sites and Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) centres. The discount will be automatically set when the payment is made.
