Any objections to Saher fine? Record online!

The Interior Ministry has launched a new online service that will allow citizens and expatriates to check if they have fines recorded under the Saher system and raise objections if they have any.
The ministry said objections must be in line with specific requirements and guidelines, including that the person lodging the appeal should be registered on its website. In addition, objections should be filed within 30 days of the date of the traffic offense.
Objections are limited to those violations recorded by the Saher system. Penalties for violations should be paid after submitting an objection to avoid the amount of the fine increasing.
It is not permissible to file objections to traffic offenses recorded before the launch of the new service, and only one objection may be filed per violation, the ministry was quoted as saying in a report on Tuesday.
The ministry said that individuals wishing to file objections could also visit the main offices of the General Directorate of Traffic in the Kingdom for information to register their complaints.
All objections would be reviewed in accordance with the rules and regulations of the General Directorate of Traffic issued by royal decree eight years ago.
Drivers must visit the site www.moi.gov.sa and they can find the relevant section under “Public Query Traffic Violation and Objection Claim.” They must fill in their identity and fine numbers.
