Abu Dhabi Announced no more diccount on traffic fines

Recommended Posts

The Abhi Dhabi police announced that the 50 percent discount on traffic is not available for next month.

This 50 percent traffic discount is effected from 2010 but now it is not available anymore.

The new rules are effected from 1st August.

A traffic violation is also increasing at an alarming rate according to Abu Dhabi Police.

They said that we are no making profit with fines, we just want to reduce the accidents.

Do not drive your car in a hurry. Drive your car according to the traffic rules. Just a small mistake can take the many lives. Drive safe and stay safe. :)

If you do the crime you should do the time. I don't see why fines should be discounted on any occasion. They're supposed to act as a deterrent and if you know that your fine will only be half of what it should be, it doesn't really deter you much.

I think such discounts will be cut by the Government because we will care less about the fines when we know that we will have to pay just half of them.

We should be glad we don't have the system Sweden uses to calculate traffic fines. There they calculate traffic fines as a percentage of your annual income, which really hurts. Rich drivers feel the pain as much as a poor driver does, so if your income is say, 2 million KR, you could end up paying a fine of 100 000 KR, which would be the same as driver that would pay say, 500 KR for the same offense because is annual income is smaller.

Maybe we should petition the RTA to implement a similar system? What do you guys think?

You did not understand Danny request, if authorities read this thread they might get an idea to link fine amount with certain percentage of your salary. So spending 600 with a salary of 20,000 doesnt hurt much but 10% of 20k is means you will be paying 2000 for one flash. Ouch.
