We consciously reduce the speed of our cars around radars, pay special attention at pedestrian crossings, and slow down as soon as the green traffic light starts blinking — to avoid traffic fines.
But there are also some traffic fines most of us don’t know about, such as a fine for driving a noisy vehicle, or a taxi refusing to carry passengers.
We list out some of them for you (click here for the complete list):
1. Opening the left door of taxi – Dh100 fine and three black points
2. Broken indicator lights – Dh100 fine and two black points
