No parking fines at this popular Dubai area
According to the RTA, the first stage (this year) covers 1,936 parking slots classified into different zones as indicated in the symbols shown in the directional signage according to the needs of the area.
About 460 parking slots will be unveiled in the second stage extending up to 2020. There will be no seasonal parking permits for this area as residential parking is provided.
The trial phase of the paid parking system at the Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) was activated on Monday, December 4.
A Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) spokesperson told that the authority is working on creating awareness among JLT community members regarding the parking system and payment modes and no fines will be issued immediately.
“The new parking system is in the awareness phase and no fines will be issued until we make sure all motorists know how the system is being operated in the JLT area,” said a spokesperson in a statement issued by RTA.
There are no parking metres in JLT. Payment is done only by sending SMS to 7275 or via the RTA Dubai mobile app. The RTA spokesperson said motorists who experience difficulties in paying parking can contact the RTA on 8009090 or through its website www.rta.ae
