Mawaqif’s paper violation notices will be replaced with electronic fines, sent via SMS, starting Sunday, 24th October. 

Inspectors will issue public parking tickets related to violations in the emirate and send them electronically instead, the ITC of the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) in Abu Dhabi announced on Tuesday.

E-tickets will now appear via text messages including all necessary details pertaining to the violation.


This initiative supports the process of digital transformation of the ITC services and the expansion of the base of smart services.

ITC has urged the public to ensure that the contact information contains a valid phone number so that they receive any public parking violations notification. This step will also enable them to benefit from the 25 percent discount in case the e-ticket fine has been paid within 30 days of issuance.
