The discount applies on all citizens, resident expats, visitors and alike. In order to get benefit of 50% discount on traffic violations fines, it must be settled within 6 months of time, until 18th October 2024. 

- This is in accordance with the orders of Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, and King Salman bin Abdulaziz, with an aim to incentivize violators to pay their fines.

- This program is an effort from the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) and the Saudi Ministry of Finance to encourage people who violated the rules to pay off their fines within six months from when the program began, either all at once or one by one, without committing any safety-related violations.

Following the implementation of this reduction, the Ministry made it clear that Article 75 of the Traffic Law would be applicable for violations occurring after this discount period. Read : Riyadh Airport launches e-Passport gates

- After the objection time and the legally defined payment deadline have passed, failure to pay the fine may result in imprisonment and enforcement measures, in addition to a 25% reduction for a single offense, as provided for in this article.

The 25% discount won't apply in certain situations, like when the 15-day payment period ends without requesting an extra 90 days or after 30 days of the extra 90-day payment period if one is requested.

No 50% discount will be given for specific traffic offenses like drifting, driving while under the influence of drugs or narcotics, going more than 50 km/h over the limit on roads with a maximum speed limit of 120 km/h or lower, or going more than 30 km/h over the limit on roads with a limit of 140 km/h.

- In order to keep everyone safe, it stressed that everyone using the roads should follow the rules of the road. See Also : Saudi Arabia calls for Shawwal Crescent sighting on Monday evening
