We face the issue of wrong parking every day in Saudi Arabia because the fine for illegal parking is too minimal and there is no process to report it.
Wrong parking fine in Saudi Arabia
There are 3 categories of wrong parking fines in Saudi Arabia;
- SR 500 fine for parking at the place designated for special needs drivers.
- SR 300 fine for parking on public roads without safety precautions.
- SR 100 fine for parking at the places where parking is not allowed (explained below).
- List of new traffic fines in Saudi Arabia
In 95% of cases, people get a fine of only SR 100 for illegal parking in Saudi Arabia which is the main reason for the high rate of violations.
In 2016, when the traffic police increased the fine for crossing a red signal in Saudi Arabia from SR 500 to SR 3,000, the traffic violations reduced significantly.
