Discounts to be available from November 1 to November 15.
The Ras Al Khaimah Police on Tuesday said that the 55 per cent discount announced on traffic fines for November 1-15 can only be availed through payment on the smartphone app of the UAE Ministry of Interior.
However, the fines involving vehicle impoundment can only be paid at the traffic and licensing centres and police stations across the emirate.
Major General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan Al Nuaimi, Commander-in-Chief of RAK Police, said the 55 per cent discount spans all types of traffic fines and even those involving vehicle impoundment.
The 55 per cent discount is not only the biggest ever in the emirate, but also the first of its kind, he added.
"The two-week discount, including all types of road violations, will take effect from November 1 to 15."
The decision is in line with the initiatives of the RAK Police to bring happiness to customers, and urge them to observe traffic rules and regulations, he underlined. "The move will reduce financial burdens on all members of the society."
Official records show that the fixed and portable radars on the roads of the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah have detected up to 219,746 speeding drivers in the first nine months of this year.
"The drivers nabbed proved to have exceeded the set speed limit posing road users' life and theirs at the stake," according to Maj-Gen Al Nuaimi.
The speeding cameras are meant to curb reckless drivers and boost safety on the roads of the emirate, he said. "These fixed and portable radars also help reduce traffic accidents and their casualties."
