Dubai: Motorists in Dubai can now pay traffic fines in instalments, Dubai Police said on Tuesday.

Drivers who hold credit cards from Emirates Islamic bank can settle their traffic fines over a course of three, six, nine or twelve months — in interest-free instalments. The minimum payment under the instalments plan is Dh500.

All that Emirates Islamic bank credit card holders have to do is to download the Dubai Police app, or use the police website to pay their fines. Payments can also be made through service centres.

Brigadier Naem Al Khateeb, director of Income Department in Dubai Police signed the agreement with Hassan Muner, Head of Credit Cards section in the bank.

Brigadier Al Khateeb, said the agreement aims to open new channels of payment for motorists in easy instalment plan.

“It is an innovation service provided by Dubai Police to achieve our strategic goal of providing happiness to the society through Dubai Police services,” Brigadier Al Khateeb said.

Meanwhile, Hassan Muner praised the new partnership with Dubai Police,

“It will make our customers have many services to clear their traffic fines,” he said.
