Just as long as they are settled within 90 days…

Back in December, Dubai Police announced a discount of 50 per cent on traffic and impoundment fines.

The discount is applicable to any fines issued between 1 January 2017 and 2 December 2017, with the proviso that they are settled within 90 days.

An update from the Dubai Police Twitter account that this discount will end on March 1 2018. So if you’ve still got fines to pay, you’re advised to get them paid off soon.

The announcement followed a tweet on 1 December from HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, that instructed the Ministry of Interior to coordinate with various traffic departments around the country to implement the generous discount.
