 RTA Dubai Police Traffic Fines

Here we take a look at the RTA in Dubai (Road & Transport Authority) and Dubai Traffic Police and the rules and regulations for driving in Dubai, the fines and points for offences and how to pay your fines online.

Online Dubai Police Fine Checker

Did you know you can check any traffic fines you may have got in the UAE on the Dubai Police website- saves any nasty surprises when you come to re-register your car.

Here is the link: www.dubaipolice.gov.ae/dp/english/e_services

You can check the status of your traffic file and see if you have any fines- you can also pay online too. It sometimes takes a few days for your fines to appear on the system so if you have been issued a ticket for bad parking for example- check the site over a few days to wait for it to show up before you can pay it online.

You may log into the Dubai Police website www.dubaipolice.gov.ae and register for free notification SMSs and/or e-mails. You will need to provide your vehicle information (plate number, category and code) as well your driver information (traffic file number, name, mobile number and e-mail).You have to clear your traffic fines in full before you can re-register any of your cars. It really is best to not save your fines all up till registration time- pay them off as you get them so you don't get hit with a massive bill.

Top tips to avoid Dubai Police Fines:


dubai police traffic fines1. Don't speed- it is quite easy to avoid getting fines really! Stick to the speed limits- there is even usually a 10- 20 km leeway but don't rely on this- some speed cameras are set at 1km above the speed limit- it is just not worth the risk.

2. Park in the right place- if you park in a metered zone- pay at the meter- you can even do this by SMS now. Make a note of the time the ticket expires- set an alarm on your phone so you don't forget. There are a lot of dusty sand lots that people do use for parking- the rule of thumb is as long as you haven't driven up and over a kerb or a pavement to get access to the area you should be ok to park there.

3. Use your hands free kit- either in car or a head piece if you really must answer the phone whilst driving. If you use your handset and are holding it you can get fined.

4. Always use your seat belt- not only is it an imperative for safety, which goes without saying- you can get fined if caught not wearing it... make sure all your passengers are wearing theirs too.

5. Never, ever jump a red light! Not only is it highly dangerous it carries severe penalties- the traffic light system was changed a while ago to have the green light start flashing approx 20 seconds before it goes to amber. This is a great indicator that the lights are going to change- as amber to red happens quite quickly. If the green lights start to flash- this means start to slow down- not to speed up to get through them!

6. Never drink and drive... nothing needs to be added to this one!
