Traffic departments in the UAE have gathered AED44 million in unpaid fines since a Dubai Police initiative began in January 2009, reports Khaleej Times.
“The initiative-in which the license and vehicle of those in default ofDh500 or more are being impounded by the traffic department of the Dubai Police -is set to become the norm for other traffic departments in the UAE,” the article said.
The problem, however, is that we haven’t noticed a drop in reckless driving. Have you?
