It is also possible to benefit from paying the fine in instalments through banks at zero interest for a period of 12 months. This is applicable if the credit card is issued by those banks which are contracting with the Abu Dhabi Police General Command and provide payment services via TAMM, the official platform of the Abu Dhabi Government, or direct payment via customer service and happiness counters.

On Wednesday, the police urged motorists to take information only from official sources and avoid spreading unverified reports.
