Saudi may revoke doubling speed fines

The Saudi Shoura Council is expected to recommend revoking the provision to double the fine for defaulters during its review of the Saher speeding regulations this week, Saudi Gazette has reported. The recommendation, made by the council's Security Committee, included making amendment in Article 73 to cancel the doubling of Saher fines if they are not paid within the stipulated period of time. However, fines should increase with the increase in speed, the committee's report said.
