RAK Police issue more than 200 traffic fines over National Day

Two-hundred and thirty fines were given out by the traffic and patrols department, with a total of 434 accidents registered over the three-day break.

More than 200 traffic fines were handed out to motorists in Ras Al Khaimah during the National Day holidays last week.

Two-hundred and thirty fines were given out by the traffic and patrols department, with a total of 434 accidents registered over the three-day break. In addition, reckless driving, driving without a licence plate or licence, and cars with over-tinted windows led to 32 vehicles being impounded.

Brig Gen Ghanem Ahmed Ghanem, director of Central Operations at Ras Al Khaimah Police, said the number of fines had dropped noticeably when compared to the same period last year.

“Traffic fines have decreased significantly this year in comparison with last year. The public is more aware of the dangers of violating the traffic law,” he said.

Police closed RAK Corniche to the public, on National Day, citing safety concerns.
