As part of the celebrations of the 50th National Day of the UAE, it also marks the preparations for the UAE Golden Jubilee celebrations in 2021, on December 2.  Citizens, residents, government and private sector entities are invited to take part in the tremendous activities here in the UAE.

For that the Sharjah Executive Council (SEC) on Tuesday approved a 50 per cent reduction in traffic fines, with the abolition of traffic points and the vehicles impounding, except for serious traffic violations from Nov.21, 2021 to Jan.31, 2022 (“Sharjah marks 50 years of UAE with 50% discount on traffic fines,” Gulf Today, Nov.17).

It is a feel good factor because 50 per cent reduction in traffic fines will give strength for a salaried person.  The Year of the 50th commemorates 50 years since the nation’s founding in 1971 and celebrates our remarkable journey from the past to today, and towards the transformative change that lies ahead in the next 50 years.

A few days ago, Ajman had also announced a 50 per cent discount on traffice fines registered before Nov.14. Motorists can avail of the discounts from Nov. 21 to Dec.31.

The SEC also approved a draft law on organising the Sharjah Education Academy, which includes the legal provisions related to the objectives, competencies, administrative formation and financial regulation of the Academy. The Council directed to refer the draft law to SEC to complete its legislative session.
