Sheikh Mohammed exempts drivers who have committed minor offences
Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed has ordered the police to exempt drivers who have committed minor motoring offences from having their vehicles impounded.
He also ordered the release of vehicles that have been impounded for half of the prescribed period.
The exemptions are, however, provided to those who don’t have history of major traffic violations, according to WAM.
It quoted Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, as saying the initiative aims to encourage drivers to maintain a clean driving record and give them an opportunity to abide by traffic laws.
