A Dubai-based driver in the UAE with AED 65,000 traffic fines has paid nothing, thanks to Dubai Police’s latest initiative.
46-year-old Jordanian Ayad Zalatimo narrated that he left the country in 2010 and returned in 2019 in the country to discover that his car has been stolen and unknown drivers have been using his car and committing multiple traffic fines.
“I was a resident of the country between 2003 and 2010. I left the country and cam back in 2019 but couldn’t find my car. It was stolen and it had AED 65,000 accumulated traffic fines,” he told Gulf News.
The traffic discount initiative has been launched by the Dubai Police last year and just a few days ago, he received a call from a police officer informing him that the fines have already been waived.
