Dubai: Motorists can renew vehicle registration without paying traffic fines under the traffic fine discount initiative launched by Dubai Police on February 6 this year.
Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, chief of Dubai Police, said: “We have coordinated with the Roads and Transport Authority to allow individuals to renew their vehicle’s registration automatically regardless of accumulated fines or any periods of confiscation imposed on vehicles, or offenses committed. We want the public to benefit from the discount initiative.”
Under the initiative, starting from February 6, motorists who don’t commit traffic offences for three months (counted from February 6) get a 25 per cent discount on accumulated traffic fines. A clean record for six months means a 50 per cent discount, nine months means a 75 per cent discount and those who have a clean record for one year get a 100 per cent discount.
“Individuals can go to registration centres and decide whether or not to pay traffic fines immediately. Individuals can choose the amount of fines they want to clear. However, if they don’t commit a traffic offence, they don’t have to pay anything till February 2020,” Al Merri added.
However, drivers from other emirates, or those who have other RTA fines, need to clear them when they renew vehicle registration.
