Traffic fine online


Post reply

I was at an intersection today and the road going straight was closed. I decided to turn right but had already crossed the free right turn. So I turned right from the intersection instead and I did this on a red light. I'm scared that this would be counted as jumping a signal. I have checked online but no fines are showing up. Will this count as jumping a signal? How long does it take for a fine to show up on the dubai police website?

You need to pray you were not observed and drive more carefully

First of all you need to check if there was camera on that intersection. It takes appox 2 days for fine to show up. Good news for you camera wont click if you took a right or U turn. But dont blame me if the fine does eventually turn up.

You will be OK, unless of course you were observed and reported by a good law abiding citizen.

On another note, how long does it take for a fine from those new speed cameras to show up? I got flashed 3 weeks ago, doing 115 kph on a road that suddenly went from 120 kph to 80 kph limit. Not sure if RTA has seen the error of their ways, because that camera was still flashing away yesterday.

The road from Al-Ain into Dubai, heading towards Wasl Hospital. The road is 120 kph all along. Then suddenly, there is a sign saying 80 as the road starts to slightly curve right entering Dubai. But then, as you ease off the accelerator, you'll reach a newly-placed camera.

But it's not the whole Al Khail Road is it? As I saw signs yesterday still stating a limit of 120kph.

That's the thing. The fine hasn't appeared in 3 weeks. It'd be at least 700 bux if it did.

Got flashed days back on SZR doing 130kph at 2 am; staying under 120 in 6 lane SZR seems like the toughest thing to do specially when its late and near deserted....

Al Khail road has always been a 100km zone for much of it! The fines show up pretty quickly online. You don't get any black points or confiscations unless you are 50kms over the speed limit, but the fines are pretty steep. I'm getting peed off with them sticking a sneaky temp on on the main road out of Mirdiff. I was tempted to go throw the thing in the back of my car yesterday and smash the hell out of it!

SZR has been downgraded to 100kph limit before you get to Dubai Marina for quite some time now.

but why a 6 lane straight-line highway is only set at 100KM?!?!?!?!? :shock:
as a result.. and for the first time in my life I started to use cruse control in my car... :evil:
I got flashed on SZR just because mistakenly i didn't pay attention to my car speed when it got only 122km or something...
the best part... a 2 lane curved road in Khawanij is set on 100KM too????? based on what they set speed limits in Dubai?!?!

To be honest I have been using my cruise control for years and it sure makes a difference - no speeding fines.
The 100 limit is ridiculous though.

read this -- UAE: Speed limits to be revised soon 07 March 2009 DUBAI – The final decision on the revision of speed limits in Dubai is expected in two months, according to the Road and Traffic Authority (RTA) Meanwhile, an RTA official said that motorists should continue to abide by the maximum and minimum speed limits on the signboards while driving on Sheikh Zayed Road )SZR) “The speed limits on SZR are 100km per hour from the World Trade Centre roundabout to the Fifth Interchange at Jebel Ali and 120km per hour from the Fifth Interchange till Abu Dhabi. The minimum speed limit on the road is 60km per hour,” the official added. The revision would come at a time when motorists, including taxi drivers, have been confused by the speed limited imposed on Sheikh Zayed Road, particularly after the installation of the new traffic cameras at different intervals of the road. “It’s very confusing sometime. With so many cameras on the road, we don’t know when we are going to get clicked,” said Abdul Khatir Rahman, a taxi driver. “Last month, two cameras clicked pictures of my car on the road, despite my speed being well within the legally acceptable limit. I really want to know if there has been any kind of revision in the speed limits.” He said. Meanwhile, the RTA official urged motorists to keep a lookout for the temporary signboards that have been erected as well. “There are some roadworks and diversions in progress on Sheikh Zayed Road and the speed limits near these zones have been reduced considerably that what has been stated, The drivers need to follow these temporary signs that show the right speed limits,” the official said. “The roads are constantly monitored for their safety records, and speed limits are being evaluated for their effectiveness,” he added. Hussain Al Banna, Director of Traffic Department listed other planned traffic initiatives, which included taking remedial actions in the dangerous traffic spots, raising the bar for traffic safety on all new road projects and introducing a road safety assessment system in the city.
