Records of 128,797 Dubai vehicles face deletion
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) that began cracking down on motor vehicles whose license plates have not been renewed even after two years.
All the 128,797 vehicles last registered on or before December 2010 now run the risk of being impounded as per the revised rules, reports Khaleej Times.
As reported by local media recently, records of motor vehicles not re-registered for two years or more would be erased from the RTA’s system rendering it entirely illegal to drive them.
Once erased, getting the registrations back would amount to paying accumulated fines besides fresh registration fees.
While the late payment for each year has been fixed at Dh300, registering anew would cost Dh480.
The minimum to be paid for each year of non-renewal is Dh780, besides all accumulated fines.
While huge accumulated fines is the main reason behind many motorists not re-registering their vehicles, RTA allows for paying them in installments if it is above Dh3,000 for individuals and Dh5,000 for companies.
