(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The dubai police on wednesday denied news carried by a section of the regional media that gcc nationals visiting the emirate are exempt from paying fines for ?unintentional? traffic violations like wrong parking wrong side driving without causing harm and exceeding the speed limit by 30kmph.

terming the reports as “baseless” major-general khamis mattar al mazeina commander-in-chief of the dubai police said that the person quoted by a saudi arabia-based newspaper is not authorised to talk on police and traffic issues. “the uae federal law does not exempt any person (from being penalised for traffic offences).”

the dubai police he said confiscated 64 vehicles and bikes last weekend for racing and reckless driving. “roads are not the place for racing or endangering people’s life.”

he said the police will not “tolerate such kind of violations” and will take strict action. most of the confiscated vehicles are luxury cars. about 18 drivers were caught racing performing stunts while driving causing chaos on roads and obstructing traffic in jumeirah al meydan al mamzar al khawaneej al mizhar university city and al manama.

“despite strict penalties some youth and teenagers continue to commit these violations. after issuing fines if the offenders are found to have endangered the life of others criminal charges will be levelled against them” maj-gen al mazeina said.

despite police warnings some youth are modifying their cars to increase speed. “some such cases led to fatal accidents.”
