Dubai’s 100% traffic fine discount returns this year

A safe driving scheme by Dubai Police could save you money

 Dubai’s 100% traffic fine discount returns this year

If you’re a driver in Dubai that has an existing traffic fine, don’t fret, as the Dubai Police are bringing back its helpful initiative so you can get a nifty discount on it.

It’s been revealed that the Dubai Police initiative is rolling out again for 2020, offering drivers the opportunity to reduce their fines by driving safely for prolonged periods of time.

Last year, a total of 557,430 motorists took advantage of the traffic fines discount, saving a total of more than Dhs546 million. That averages out to Dhs981 per driver.

Because of it, major traffic accidents decreased by 38 percent over the past year.

The scheme offers drivers who have previously committed traffic offences a 25 percent discount on their fines following a three-month period of driving without committing another offence. The discount will climb to 50 percent once the driver keeps a clean record for six months.

From there, it’s possible to escalate your discount to as much as 100 percent, only if you drive safely without committing any traffic offences for a full year.
