More than half a million motorists have benefited from the Traffic Fines Settlement initiative in Dubai last year.

According to Dubai Police, more than 400,000 of the beneficiaries were women while more than 110,000 were men. 

The first-of-its-kind initiative has helped reduce traffic-related costs by more than AED6.1 million. 

 It has also helped reduce the number of fatal traffic accidents by 16 per cent and has seen a 38 per cent drop in the number of severe injuries on the road.
