Sharjah: Sharjah Police have referred a driver to Traffic Prosecution for committing 132 traffic offenses worth Dh1.1 million, an official said on Wednesday.

Major Mohammed Abdul Rahman Bin Kasmol, deputy director of Wasit police station, said they arrested the Asian driver after he committed many offenses and did not pay the fines in time.

“Most of the fines were for ‘passengers smuggling’ issued by Roads and Transport Authority in Sharjah. He committed other fines like lane discipline and some fines in other emirates,” Major Bin Kasmol said.
