Traffic fines may rise in Oman
- Oman: Thursday, September 13 - 2012 at 11:19
The Royal Oman Police (ROP) is considering raising the existing traffic fines, in an effort to decrease escalating number of road accidents, Oman Daily Observer has reported. A decision on the matter will be taken in less than three months, said Brig. Mohammed bin Awadh al Rowas, director general of traffic at ROP. "The amount of traffic fine is a major contributor in reducing road accidents and we are working out modalities to increase fines along with shortening the period of payment from one year to one month," he said. "Nevertheless, we cannot ignore the negligence of a driver including speeding followed by use of mobile phones while driving, wrong overtaking and tailgating," he added.
