"traffic violation" @

By prynz

Hi! Just want to ask your help if someone in the QL community knows how accurate and reliable is the website regarding "traffic violations (beating the red light)"? I heard several and different issues that it will take 24 hours, 3 days, 1 week before it will be loaded in the system. Can anyone advise? Thanks

Doty....I have to disagree. I know of friends who received speeding camera fines weeks after the event. I got a red light camera fine months after the event. Reliable? Its relevant really....for qatar, yes I would definately say its reliable ;)

"exception" is everywhere but normally I haven't heard such complaints from other persons


Once i was charged QAR.500/- for not wearing SEATBELT and can you imagine what they wrote in their site.


Overloading of car more than 40m height


You know i was using HONDA CITY saloon car at the time i was fined. When i went in person, i was informed by NOT INTERESTED qatari lady in abaya that THIS VIOLATION IS FOR NOT WEARING SEAT BELT.


I just slamed my head hard and asked her to please update ur service as it was mentioned totally wrong. Ofcourse, she didn't take interest in my complaint/suggestion as usual by MOI's cooperative staff.
