Procedure to Challenge/Dispute Traffic Violation

Saher System of Traffic Regulations in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had been receiving a lot of criticism from the general public as people think that sometimes it imposes fines unfairly. Traffic Police in Saudi Arabia has installed Saher Cameras at traffic signals which flash if someone crosses red light. There is another type of Saher Cameras which detects over speeding. Fine of crossing red light ranges from SR 500 to SR 900 but fine for over speeding depends upon the speed. You can read about the traffic violation fines in this link “List of Traffic Fines in Saudi Arabia”. In order to build trust of people, Saudi Government has taken a very good step by introducing a system to Challenge/Dispute the traffic violation using Abhsir (MOI) Account.
