An Emirati man in Dubai has paid Dh300,000 in past speeding fines.

Topping the list of drivers with the most traffic offences in Dubai now is a Bangladeshi woman, with 204 violations, amounting to Dh201,570, reported Al Ittihad, the Arabic-language sister paper of The National.

Just two months ago, the woman had 188 traffic fines in her record, worth Dh186,900, according to figures from the Dubai traffic department.

An Emirati woman is now second on the list with 76 violations worth more than Dh117,000.

Twenty-five people on the list of top traffic violators, including 19 Emiratis, have made arrangements to settle their fines. The other six are from Britain, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Lebanon.
