The special initiative providing a 55 % traffic fine discount for all types of road violations in Ras Al Khaimah was effective from 1 November to 15 November 2017. Now, the period has been extended for 17 more days. Major General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan Al Nuaimi, commander-in-chief of the RAK Police, said the extension was meant to mark the UAE's 46th National Day.

The reduction decision is in line with the RAK police initiatives to bring happiness to customers, and urge them to observe traffic rules and regulations. The move will reduce financial burdens on all members of the society."
