RTA Traffic fines in Dubai Abu Dhabi UAE

I always make it a point that I drive carefully on road for my personal safety and safety of other commuters on the road. And however careful you are, there may be times that you just forget to renew your parking ticket or you just the red light and get a traffic fine. For me, it is always be careful than to be sorry!

Many of us may not be aware of the various fines that are imposed on various violations in Dubai. You can always check your traffic fines online on Dubai Police Site, Abu Dhabi Police site or RTA site.

Traffic fines are avoidable through following ways:

  1. Don’t drive rash, however tempting it is, especially on Sheikh Zayed Road. The maximum speed in most highways is 120 Kilometers per hour with an upper limit of 20 Kilometers.
  2. Follow lane discipline. Respect other drivers by giving a courtesy indicator while changing lanes.
  3. Always drive with valid driver’s license, insurance and vehicle registration. You do not want to get into legal mumbo-jumbo later.
  4. Never drive under the influence of alcohol.
  5. Respect traffic signals. If the green light starts blinking, stop your vehicle at the signal.
  6. Do not flash other vehicles unless it is emergency. This is RUDE!
