UAE will forgive Omani nationals' 2018 traffic fines.

The government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced a significant gesture towards Omani citizens by waiving all traffic fines incurred between 2018 and 2023. This decision, reported by the state news agency Wam, follows a recent state visit by Sultan Haitham of Oman to the UAE. During his visit, Sultan Haitham engaged in high-level discussions with UAE President Sheikh Mohamed, focusing on enhancing bilateral relations between the two countries.

The discussions between Sultan Haitham and President Sheikh Mohamed resulted in the signing of agreements aimed at strengthening cooperation across various sectors. Key areas of focus include renewable energy, technology, and rail infrastructure. Notably, the leaders also unveiled investment partnerships amounting to $35 billion, underscoring the growing economic collaboration between Oman and the UAE.

One significant development in the partnership is the $3 billion project to construct a railway link connecting the two nations. Spearheaded by Oman and the Etihad Rail Company—a joint venture between Oman Rail and Etihad Rail—the ambitious railway project aims to facilitate efficient transportation between Abu Dhabi and Sohar, situated to the north of Muscat. The railway network is expected to accommodate trains capable of reaching speeds of up to 200 kilometers per hour, marking a substantial advancement in regional connectivity.

The decision to waive traffic fines for Omani citizens aligns with the broader trend of providing relief during exceptional circumstances. Recently, Dubai Police announced the forgiveness of all traffic fines incurred during severe storms that swept through the UAE. This compassionate gesture reflects the authorities' commitment to supporting the community amidst challenging situations, as articulated by Gen Abdullah Al Marri, commander-in-chief of Dubai Police.

Moreover, the initiative to waive penalties during adverse weather conditions extends beyond Dubai, as evidenced by a similar amnesty declared by Sharjah Police. In response to the heavy rain and floods, Sharjah Police announced the issuance of certificates of disposal for vehicles damaged during the inclement weather, free of charge.

In summary, the UAE's decision to waive traffic fines for Omani citizens and the actions taken by local authorities to alleviate the impact of severe weather underscore the nation's commitment to supporting its citizens and fostering strong bilateral ties with neighboring countries like Oman.
