Up to 25% Discount Offered by Dubai Gov’t on Traffic Fines this May

According to the announcement, motorists can avail up to 100% discount on total accumulated fines if they manage to avoid committing violations for 12 months.

In line with this, the first discount was announced to be issued starting May, cutting down 25% off traffic fines of eligible motorists.

The good news does not end there though, because as motorists continue to avoid committing violations, they will progressively become eligible to avail higher discounts. Those who are able to maintain a spotless record for up to six consecutive months will enjoy 50% discount. Continue this way until November and get 75% off on traffic fines. If the streak reaches up until January next year, they may collect up to 100% off on all accumulated fines on traffic violations.
