Before renewing our car registration, finding out the amount of traffic fines we have accumulated over the year can make us nervous and at times shock us. In 2014, more than 2.98 million traffic fines were issued by Dubai Police to motorists.

Paying a lump sum amount towards your fines can set you back financially. If you’re looking for other options to help lighten the financial burden, find out how you can pay your fines through easy installment plans. Also, check out other offers that will help you save some cash this week.
