Traffic fines from last year will continue to get a 50 per cent discount for the next five weeks.

The discounts, which apply across the country, will end on March 1, Abu Dhabi police have confirmed.

The reduction was ordered by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, in a directive to the Ministry of Interior last December.

It applies to all fines incurred before December 2, 2017, as part of National Day celebrations and the Year of Giving.
