Ajman Police will introduce a 50 per cent discount on traffic violation fines, effective from the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan on May 27.
Major General Sheikh Sultan bin Abdallah Al Nuaimi, commander-in-chief of Ajman Police, said the value of traffic fines will be reduced from May 27 till the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The fines reduction will include all violations that were committed before May 21 of this year and will include all fines imposed and issued in Ajman, excluding the violation of jumping a red signal and of reckless driving. Cars that violated the rules after their owners added extra devices and accelerator in cars for speed while causing noise will not benefit from the reduction.
"Payment of reduced fine should be done through the smart application of Ajman Police or the Ministry of Interior as this will be the only accepted method of payment to get a reduction. The decision of reducing the value of fines is a motive to encourage erring motorist to pay accumulated fines and is an initiative by the police to ensure the happiness of clients while encouraging them to pay a reduced amount for their fines," Major General Sheikh Sultan explained.
