Salik

Dubai’s electronic toll collection system – dubbed Salik, meaning “open” or “clear” – was introduced in July 2007 in order to ease traffic in a city with the world’s highest car ownership per head. But does Salik really live up to its name?

Using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, Salik doesn’t have any toll booth or toll collectors. Vehicles move freely at highway speeds through e-gates that scan the electronic chip inserted in a small sticker tag affixed to the front windshield. A toll of 4 dirhams ($1.1) is automatically deducted from the mandatory prepaid toll account of the vehicle’s owner.

The sticker tags are available in numerous locations, including petrol stations, Dubai Islamic Bank and Emirates Bank branches, and other outlets authorized by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

Motorists are notified via SMS when their accounts need to be recharged or when they are fined. Motorists can check their account either on-line or through Salik’s phone hotline.
