The Traffic and Patrols Department, in collaboration with the Department of Comprehensive Police Stations, intensified its efforts to tackle this issue along Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. This proactive stance aligns with the Ministry of Interior's overarching strategy to promote road safety through the utilisation of modern traffic systems, thus fostering a secure environment for all road users.

Chief of the Traffic Investigation and Control Department of the Traffic and Patrols Department of the Ras Al Khaimah Police, Major Khalid Al Shamsi, revealed that 289 cars that were breaking the law were caught in 2023. Of these infractions, 247 cases were cars whose owners had illegally altered the engine or chassis without the required permission. A 1,000 dirham fine, 12 black points on the driver's record, and a 30-day mandatory car impoundment period were applied for each of these infractions.

In addition, 42 cars were found to be driving without the correct licence plates, which resulted in fines of 3,000 dirhams and 23 black points for the drivers. These violators were subject to a harsher punishment, which included having their cars seized for a full 90 days. Major Al Shamsi highlighted how vital it is for all drivers to closely follow traffic laws and regulations, stressing how maintaining these standards will improve overall road safety. Drivers can escape legal repercussions and the subsequent penalties imposed on infractions by doing this.

Moreover, the Ras Al Khaimah Police's concerted efforts to combat traffic violations have led to the apprehension of numerous offending vehicles, particularly those operating without proper number plates or undergoing unauthorised modifications. Such actions not only serve to uphold traffic laws but also contribute to the broader goal of fostering a safer road environment for everyone.
