Accident ratio has been decreased drastically in Saudi Arabia and all credit goes to the implementation of strict rules & regulations with hefty penalties. But on the other hand, you may have observed that the number of traffic violations is increasing exponentially. This is because local police have no leniency to catch the violators.
The fine amount is different for a different violation. This is categorized in an offensive basis like Drifting and Red Signal Cross is a highly offensive violation that can lead to imprisonment immediately. Others are over speed,
The lowest five is for wrong parking or for if you leave a vehicle with the engine in running condition.
The heaviest fine is for drifting that is 20,000 for the first time, 40,000 SAR for second and 60,000 SAR for the third violation. The other most common is for violating Red signal also known as traffic signal camera fine and it starts from 3000 SAR to 6000 SAR.
