The police earlier in December, 2019, announced a discount in the traffic fines that were recorded in the emirate before Dec.22, 2019, by 50 per cent with cancellation of car impoundment penalties and black points during the same period. The decision excludes the dangerous violations, the police said.

The fines can be also paid in instalments for a period of one year without interest by customers of the First Abu Dhabi Bank, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Mashreq Bank, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank and Emirates Islamic Bank.
The hassle-free service aims to make it easier for drivers and vehicle owners to pay their fines in instalments. This helps promote the happiness and positive values of the customers.
