Love driving in Dubai? If yes, then there’s an important update that might change a lot of things. It is so because Gulf is building a unified traffic system that will link all the Gulf states in the GCC. At present, the fines and penalties vary across the region; however, per this new update and policy, one fine will be followed across GCC. It means motorists in all GCC countries will be accountable for fines on violations committed in any state. Here’s everything you must know about it.
The new technology will be in function across Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. And when this comes in place, you will be required to pay the fine for any violation made during your travels in these GCC countries once you return to your home country. The new linked system will enable you to pay the fine. For example, if you are a UAE resident travelling to Oman, Saudi or other GCC countries, and if you break any traffic rules while travelling, you will be liable to pay a fine once you return back from the trip to your home country.
The new system is in the final stage and will be rolled out later this year. This new system is being launched to reduce the number of accidents, increasing the safety standards across GCC countries. The feature will also enable the GCC countries to exchange and coordinate data. More details about this rollout will be out soon, so stay tuned for all the updates.
