50% discount on Traffic fines in Ras Al Khaimah
The Ras Al Khaimah Police announced a 50 per cent discount on the traffic fines accumulated in 2019 and before.
The one-month discount — from September 1 to October 1, 2020 — also includes the cancellation of vehicle impoundments, but excludes traffic fines for dangerous driving offences.
“The move, in line with the RAK Police initiatives meant to bring happiness to the society, will hopefully encourage drivers to observe traffic rules and regulations, settle their accumulated fines, and reduce their financial burdens,” police sources said.
Drivers need to make the payment online via the smart applications of the Ministry of Interior to avail of the discount, they added.
“They also need to visit the nearest service centre in the country to add the due black traffic points on their driving licenses so that they can then make electronic payment.”
However, traffic fines accumulated because of dangerous driving offences are excluded from this discount. These mainly include driving a vehicle in a way that poses a grave risk to road users’ safety, driving a heavy truck in a hazardous way, driving a noisy vehicle, and escaping from a traffic police, they explained.
