Complete list of UAE traffic offences and penalties
If you are a UAE driver, getting to know the traffic rules and regulations could save you a lot of money - as well as your licence.
Rack up 24 black points for common misdemeanors such as not renewing your registration plates or parking fines and you will be banned from driving for a year, and could also incur a hefty fine or have your vehicle impounded.
