My friend who lives in Abu Dhabi shared with me earlier this morning a screenshot of his traffic fines that were reduced by half after an order from the Crown Prince. The reduction will be on fines incurred before December 2, 2017, with the discounted fines to be paid within three months. The announcement comes as the country celebrates its 46th National Day.

Another friend in Dubai woke up to see all his fines getting cancelled.
