Ras Al Khaimah Police launched a new traffic initiative titled ‘خالفناك وسامحناك’ to promote vehicle license plate renewal in the emirate – one of the various initiatives RAK Police is launching to mark the Year of Tolerance in the UAE.
The launch took place during a preliminary meeting attended by high-ranking officials from RAK Police and chaired by Brigadier General Jamal Ahmed Al Tayer, Director-General of Resources and Support Services at the RAK Police General Directorate.
“The new initiative serves the Ministry of Interior’s objective to improve the public’s satisfaction with services offered, and enhance safety and security on the roads,” said Brigadier General Al Tayer.
The initiative calls on motorists to renew their license plates as soon as possible – particularly those with plates that have been damaged or erased – seeing as the UAE’s Federal Traffic Law calls for issuing an AED 400 fine for licenses with unclear numbers.
The awareness campaign kicks off on August 4, 2019, taking place over the course of an entire month, including inspection campaigns. Violations will not be registered in the traffic system if license plates are renewed within 14 days of the fines being issued.
