Drivers will be able to use this discount starting from the first day of Eid Al Fitr. Moreover, this was introduced for drivers who paid their fines with 15 days of their issuance. However, the period was extended to a month until Eid al Fitr.

This was implemented to ease payment on the expat community which is about 80 percent of UAE population. Furthermore, the Abu Dhabi Executive Committee also approved a proposal to reduce tourism fees from 6 to 3.5 percent and municipality fees to 2 percent.
