I think a lot of those people die crossing SZR and the like so I imagine that's what authorities are most concerned about rather than smaller roads in residential areas.
I would like to know what if I didn't get paid the penalty of jaywalking in a small street for more than a month is there any additional penalty !?and can u please help me ,I would like to know where will I get my Emirates ID to pay my penalty I was caught in deira union
The police are in plain clothes and issue tickets to those crossing streets near metro stations when there is an underpass or overpass available. Or, for example, in Karama, where there is a crosswalk available in front of Al Attar shopping centre on Kuwait Street. People get fines in this area for willy-nilly crossing the street; a lot of effort has been put into making crosswalks and underpasses and the like.
Nobody in Dubai walks across SZR, and so this is not their concern.
>> angelshaw, if they gave you a ticket when you didn't possess Emirates ID, you can likely pay it without presenting it also; indeed, likely you can pay it on-line. For fines related to cars there is no additional penalty for not paying a ticket within a certain time period, and so likely that is the same for your ticket. However, to renew your license plates, you would have to clear all fines first. What information did you give them? You can probably view the information on-line if you go to the police website. I normally go there and check for fines before renewing my car plates so I am not taken by surprise by some fine when I am in RTA office. I doubt that there will be a surcharge; does it say on the ticket that the fine must be paid within a certain time? I doubt it ...Edited: 01 June 2018, 19:16
People believe a paper barcode can detect a jay walker?
<<Unless there's been a change in workers' behaviour that statement is incorrect. I remember reading about the deaths in the past.>>
SZR is specifically mentioned in this article as one of the highways with overpasses (and therefore nobody need try to dart over 2 consecutive 6 lane highways) ... didn't you notice?
Additionally, kindly point to the labour camp that abuts SZR and therefore gives the labourers a possible need to cross. Umm Suqiem Road is specifically mentioned in the article (which is no surprise since it is nearby Al Quoz where there is a significant number of labour camps.)
I repeat: Nobody in Dubai walks across SZR.
And your article falls short of contradicting that statement.
And, actually, yes I do think that losing a months wages just might bring about "a change in workers' behaviour." Certainly *you* have been one to trumpet how safe Dubai is; and just why do you think that is?? That's right ... penalties for misbehaviour.
Obviously the man who crossed SZR between Emirates Towers and Financial Centre metro stations at around 7am one morning in late March was a figment of my imagination ...
hugedxb, cookie is obviously thinking of a completely different SZR to the one you and I know people do cross.
