The Abu Dhabi Police has said that motorists who exceed fine amount of AED 7,000 will have their vehicles impounded.
The authorities are not playing around when it comes to the vehicle fined. If your fines sum up over AED 7,000 expect to get your vehicle impounded and it doesn’t stop there. Once the vehicle is seized, the fines need to be paid off and the vehicle claimed in three months to ensure that it is not auctioned off. That’s right, you have a deadline of three months before you lose your beloved ride to the highest bidder. In addition, if the bid is lower than the value of the fines issued, the balance is added to the violator’s file and you are left with more money due.
There is no need to worry if your fines have been adding up. The police have said that motorists will be allowed to pay the due amount in installments provided they are done in a year. This can be one through Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, First Abu Dhabi Bank, Mashreq Bank and Emirates Islamic Bank.
This measure has been enforced as a move to reduce road rage and inculcate responsible driving on the roads. The more you delay it and dodge the fines, the more your fines you are likely to incur. So, get those accounts in order and drive safely and avoid the rip in your wallet.
