Motorists may not have to pay traffic fines in Year of Tolerance

If you’ve been charged a traffic fine recently, a new initiative issued by the Dubai Police could mean you won’t have to pay them off.

In line with the Year of Tolerance, drivers won’t have to pay their fines if they followed specified rules, under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

This applies to all vehicles registered in Dubai, as long as the driver abides by traffic laws and regulations, and doesn't commit any violations for a full year starting from February.

Follow the rules for three months and motorists will get a quarter of their fine waved, six months for half, nine months for three quarters and a whole year for so you won’t have to pay the fine at all, next time you re-register your car.

The initiative doesn’t apply to vehicles registered with businesses, rental offices or companies, and does not apply to RTA and Dubai Municipality violations.

The Ministry of Economy also announced motorists can get free car check-ups in the UAE to honour the Year of Tolerance.

If you fancy a swanky drive around Dubai this weekend, drivers can hire a new set of premium cars from the Udrive app in Dubai, which includes Mercedes Benz or Mustang.
