The Traffic and Patrols Department of Sharjah Police announced that there are more than two million different cases related to traffic infractions that are yet to be cleared by motorists. These cases have been unsettled since the year 2003.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Sharjah Police, Major General Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi said that there have been more than 2,400,000 traffic fines which are left unpaid since 2003. Several of these infractions include speeding tickets, using mobile phone while driving and not wearing seatbelts among others.

Major General Al Shamsi mentioned that the traffic fines can be paid off by motorists while the 50% discount on these fines is in offer. Accumulated penalties can be paid under the discount scheme that is available since November 16, 2021 for 50 days.

The discount scheme was introduced by the Sharjah Executive Council as a part of the 50th National Day celebrations of UAE. While the offer covers fines issued before November 21 this year, the offer is open for payment until January 31, 2022.

Impoundment of vehicles and traffic violation points has also been cancelled under this discount offer. However, serious traffic violations are not covered.

Modes of Fine Payment:

  1. Sharjah Police website
  2. Ministry of Interior app
  3. ‘Sahl’ payment kiosks
