Dubai motorists will soon be able to use a new WhatsApp service to establish if they have received any traffic fines.

The initiative has been announced by the Roads and Transport Authority, although an exact date for its launch has not been given.

A video on the RTA’s Twitter page depicts a driver typing the message “I want to pay my fines” into their mobile phone.

In response, the RTA sends a text back advising that “a new service is coming”.

A message on the RTA’s Twitter feed says: “How and where do you pay your fines? Soon you will be able to access all the information you need at any time through the new service on WhatsApp.”

Drivers will be able to contact the RTA via their WhatApp number 058 8009090.
