Traffic rules are a must for every corner of the world wherever vehicles operate and making sure that there are strict measures available to ensure the application of the existing laws and regulations is also very necessary. UAE has one of the most developed traffic systems in place and ensures that its citizens are well aware of the traffic laws in effect.
There are also facilitations provided to the residents using announcing discounts on traffic fines every once in a while. You must abide by all traffic rules properly. While obtaining a driving license, the majority of the regulations are made very clear, and different tests are done to assess the understanding of an individual about the rules.
The most recent set of regulations were announced in early 2019, and it has the following clauses:
Driving without an unclear or dirty number plate in Ras Al Khaimah will result in a fine of Dh 400. The said money would not be registered immediately in the system, and the driver would give a time of 14 days to amend it.
There would be a ‘fined but forgiven’ initiative between August 4, 2019, and two months following it i.e., up until October 4, 2019, by the Ras Al Khaimah Police which will give 14 days to drivers driving with an unclear number plate to follow corrective measures.
This initiative of ‘fined but forgiven’ is in line with the traffic police’s celebration of a year of tolerance and is a welcome measure for the sake of spreading awareness about traffic rules and giving the public a positive sentiment of the traffic police and the system in general.
