The UAE announces the start of implementing the 5,000 dirham fine today for this traffic violation
The Emirates Transport Company announced the extension of the deadline for registration in the national electronic system, and this program is for truck tracking, confirming that the fines for violations announced recently will be fully implemented beginning today, corresponding to November 1, 2023.
This system intends to place a tracking device on all transit trucks, particularly those that use ports and land orders, to guarantee that they adhere to the defined routes. The tracking devices are unplugged from the trucks upon arrival at the port or exiting the land border.
Trucks arrive safely and on time.
It is worth mentioning that the latest judgment falls under the purview of the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security (ICP), which is responsible for controlling the movement of vehicles and shipments, ensuring their safe arrival on time, and monitoring potential infractions. This includes all transit trucks transporting hazardous and prohibited items, as well as goods with significant customs charges.
ICP demonstrated this technology at GITEX Global, the world's largest technology exhibition, which recently finished at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

These new systems will assist drivers in taking the correct routes, such that if a truck driver enters banned regions, the operations center will notify him that the route he traveled is incorrect and request that he adjust his route. During the GITEX show at the pavilion, an ICP spokesman said that in the event of a traffic accident, the driver is contacted and the vehicle is stopped.
Because it is mandatory to install tracking devices to trucks, violators will face penalties.
The penalty, according to an official of GITEX Global's ICP wing, will take effect on November 1.
According to an earlier ICP statement, the first month's fine will be 1,000 dirhams, followed by 100 dirhams for each following month, up to a maximum of 5,000 dirhams.
The license holder or his legal representative can register in the system by submitting electronically and attaching the necessary documents such as the vehicle license, company activity, truck plate number, and so on, and then an appointment is set to confirm the registration in the system. Tracking devices are installed on the truck, which means it enters the system and is subject to the country's approved tracking and monitoring system.
