The Executive Council of Sharjah under the Chairmanship of Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, announced discounts in traffic fines of 50 per cent committed in 2011 and before.
Major General Hamid Mohammed Al Hadidi, Commander in Chief of Sharjah Police, welcomed the initiative.
He said the initiative – which will be effective from January 2012 – is aimed at alleviating the financial burden.
The discount offer will continue for four months and includes all types of violations recorded in Sharjah.
Al Hadidi said this initiative is a good opportunity for all drivers and vehicle owners to reduce violations and respect the rules and traffic laws and maintain their safety and the safety of road users.
