Speeding fines in Dubai

The roads in the UAE are considered some of the best in the world, but there are many speed cameras on the highways. In Dubai, there are a lot of traffic cameras installed on the roads, almost every 1-2 kilometers.

What are the speed limits in the Emirates

The most important speed limits in the UAE:

  • In cities, the speed limit is 60 km/h, but there are often signs allowing lower speeds.
  • On highways, the speed limit for cars can be 100-140 km/h.
  • On the country’s main highway, Sheikh Zayed Road, the speed limit is 80 km/h.

In all emirates except Abu Dhabi, there is a speed limit of 20 km/h within which drivers will not receive a fine. In the UAE capital, a fine can be issued immediately if you exceed the speed limit by 1 km/h.

How much you can be fined

If you exceed the speed limit by 20 to 30 km / h, the UAE police will write a fine of about 600 AED, and exceeding from 30 to 40 km / h – 700 AED. If the speed exceeds 60 km/h, the police can impound the car, and if the speed exceeds 80 km/h, they can issue a license revocation. Illegal racing on public roads is punishable by a fine of AED 2,000 and the driver may be arrested.

Speed Fines Table

Speeding Fine Amount (AED) Black Points Vehicle Confiscation Period
Exceeding the authorized speed limit by more than 80 km/h 3000 23 30 days
Exceeding the authorized speed limit by more than 60 km/h 2000 12 30 days
Exceeding the authorized speed limit up to 60 km/h 1500 6 15 days
Exceeding the authorized speed limit up to 40 km/h 700
Exceeding the authorized speed limit up to 30 km/h 600
Exceeding the authorized speed limit up to 20 km/h 300

In addition, the Dubai Police can issue a fine of 200-400 AED for slow driving – if the driver moves significantly slower than the flow of traffic. You can get such a fine on highways.

What to do if the police give you a fine

Tourists pay all traffic fines at the time of handing over the car to the rental agency. Do not try to negotiate with the UAE police or pay the fine on the spot – just hand the ticket to your manager at Brooklands.
