The Abu Dhabi Police Department of Traffic and Patrols has announced a new initiative wherein residents of the emirate will be permitted to pay their traffic fines in five installments over the course of a year.

It has partnered with five banks to allow drivers to use credit cards from those institutions to pay the fines without any interest charged on it.

The five banks include First Abu Dhabi Bank, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Mashreq Al Islami, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank and Emirates Islamic Bank.

The authorities said that in order to avail of this initiative, drivers must possess credit cards from one of the five banks and contact their bank no later than two weeks from the date on which they were fined, asking the banks to convert the fine into monthly installments.

The Abu Dhabi Police recently revealed that it had recorded over 13,700 instances of tailgating incidents this year alone. The penalty for doing so is a Dhs400 fine and four black points.

Also, in the first six months of this year, over 22,000 motorists were fined in Abu Dhabi for either not wearing a seat belt themselves or for not ensuring that the others in the car were buckled up as well. The fine involves Dhs400 for every person not wearing a seat belt in the car, and also four black points on the driver’s license.
