The Abu Dhabi Family and Civil Administrative Cases Court rejected a lawsuit filed by a man against another demanding him to pay Dhs15,000, the value of traffic fines the appellee allegedly committed in three days when he took the vehicle to try it for purchase.
Details of the case date back to earlier when the appellant filed a lawsuit in which he demanded that the appellee be obligated to pay him Dhs15,170 with fees and expenses, indicating that he took his car for three days in order to examine it to buy it, but he committed violations of Dhs15,170.
The appellant attached a picture of the violations which he submitted to court.
The court indicated that the case papers were devoid of evidence that the appellant paid the traffic fines which he demanded to obligate the appellee to pay.
The case was dismissed and the court obligated the appellant to pay the fees and expenses, affirming that the owner of the a vehicle is required to pay all the violations committed by the vehicle until its ownership is transferred to another.
According to Article 10 of Minister of Interior Resolution No. 178 of 2017 regarding traffic control rules and procedures, the concerned authority notifies the vehicle owner of the details of the violations against his vehicle and in case he finds that he did not commit any of these, he should notify the user of the vehicle within a month to check with the competent authorities to pay the fine and calculate the traffic points.
