Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs at the Ministry of Interior Major-General Abdullah Al-Muhanna said the ministry is proposing to increase the value of traffic fines by 50 or 100 percent, reports Al-Anba daily.
However, he added, the proposal needs the stamp of the National Assembly. Al-Muhanna added he is in favor of increasing the value of fines because the decision will have a positive impact and enforce compliance with the law.
He pointed out the speeding violations have decreased by 62 percent, recklessness and making stunts on the road by 20 percent, skipping the red traffic light by 25 percent and driving against the flow of traffic by 55 percent.
