Police in Ajman are cutting traffic fines in half for motorists who keep a clean record for six months.

A new initiative is being rolled out to encourage drivers to stick to traffic rules by rewarding those who slow down and stay safe when behind the wheel.

Police in the emirate said the scheme will be evaluated at the end of the year - and could be extended if it helps to drive down road offences.

The move comes just weeks after Dubai Police announced that road users would have fines wiped out if they steered clear of trouble for an entire year.

Major General Shaikh Sultan bin Abdullah Al Nuaimi, commander-in-chief of Ajman Police, said the discount scheme is in line with the Year of Tolerance and is part of an effort to reduce the financial burden on motorists in the emirate.
