UAE Police Forces are offering a 50% discount on traffic fines in honor of UAE National Day
Police in Umm Al Quwain have followed those in Ajman and Abu Dhabi in offering discounts of up to 50% off the price of traffic fines for quick payment.
The new practice of providing discounts was initially introduced by the Abu Dhabi Police.
Fines can be paid through the Ministry of Interior app or on police websites. The discounts do not apply to serious offenses, and the specific restrictions and reductions differ from one emirate to the next.
The Abu Dhabi police encourage paying penalties on time. A 35% discount is now available on fines paid within 60 days of issuance in order to discourage people from letting fines accumulate and running the danger of financial hardship. A 25% reduction will be given for payments made over any period of time between 60 days and a calendar year.
Drivers who pay between December 1, 2022, and January 6, 2023, for certain offenses in Umm Al Quwain will receive a 50% discount.
