SHARJAH // Drivers struggling to pay off traffic fines in Sharjah can take advantage of a new instalment plan.

Traffic police will launch the plan for outstanding traffic fines in Sharjah for people who want to renew their car registration in February.

Once fines from other emirates are paid off, the driver can pay half of their Sharjah fines when renewing the car licence and pay the rest within a year.

Sharjah Police said the plan is only available on Sharjah fines for people with an outstanding balance of more than Dh1,000.

Lt Col Ahmad Al Naour, deputy director of Sharjah Traffic Police, said the plan is for individuals only, not companies.

“Owners will have to pay any outstanding traffic fines in other emirates before they would be able to use the instalment plan to renew the car registration,” he said.
