Dunno about Sharjah, but here is a pointless fact; in Saudi you are jailed for 30 days and then deported.... :oops:

Dubai there is a fine. I beleive they remove 6 points and charge you 1500 AED. No jail. Though I may be mistaken.

Sharjah, no clue.

The Dubai police announced a while ago, that they would start to jail red light jumpers for 30 days, but many thought this would be too harsh. It used to be 500Dhs fine and 5 points on your licence (for traffic violations they add points to your licence, if you rack up a certain amount, your licence is revoked and you can no longer drive). But the fine is alot more now. If the camera flashed, you might have been speeding too, which would also incur another fine.

The rumour I heard was your car gets impounded! Can't possibly be true as I hear and see cars going up the road through red light cameras and speed cameras at mach 9- same cars again and again!

If you are speeding with a rental car the traffic fine goes onto the bill and must be paid when you return the car. (Yes, speaking from experience :oops: )
