The department of public works has announced a 40 percent discount on the environment violations registered in Ras Al Khaimah in line with the holy month of Ramadan and the Year of Zayed, to bring happiness to the society. The move also aims to enlighten the public about the importance of preserving the environment and encourage them to keep it clean since the Raqib patrols have recorded 1,849 violations in the first three months of the year alone.
Most of these violations registered being at the tourist, beach and desert areas, mainly at Jebel Jais, Corniche Al Qawasim, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, as well as the beaches of Al Muairidh and the Saudi Institute. The department will be launching more environment patrols at the tourist Marjan Island to curb violations. The department had previously launched another initiative which gave 30 percent discount on the violations to mark the Day of Happiness.
