Conclusion

It should be noted that the purpose of the Dubai police traffic penalties is not to frighten people away from driving. They exist to safeguard car drivers and to maintain adequate road discipline, as do all well-developed nations across the world. Dubai is a people-friendly nation, and its officials seek to keep it safe and protected for visitors of all nationalities. As a result, the modification of traffic fines in Dubai plainly demonstrates the same. Driving in Dubai is a joyful experience if traffic laws are observed immediately.
