Dubai Police are allegedly offering a 50 percent discount on unpaid fines from 2016, if citizens head over to one of 295 kiosks across the city.
The report, from Gulf News, quotes a senior ranking official within Dubai Police as saying drivers will be able to get half off their fines, thanks to the UAE’s Year of Giving initiative. Major General Mohammad Saad Al Shareef, assistant commander of administration affairs at Dubai Police, said drivers can pay their fines at Max Box kiosks, as well as 120 branches of Emirates Post.
“I urge the public to benefit from this service to pay their fines in a quick and simple way. Our aim is to make the people living in the UAE happy by paying their fines in no time,” he said.
The 50 percent discount will automatically apply when drivers go to pay their fines, and the discount also applies when paid online via the Dubai Police website [hyperlink] and at various RTA centres. There are another 800 kiosks available in other emirates for users to pay their fines as well.
It is worth noting the offer does not apply to fines accrued in 2017, nor fines relating to the updated traffic laws that came into effect earlier this month.
