On September 2, motorists across the UAE were given instructions to sign up online to pay their road tolls in Abu Dhabi, which is set to be put into implementation from October 15 onwards.

According to the website, registering a vehicle costs a minimum of AED 100, and a transport official had said at the launch of the road toll system in July that the AED 50 of which, will be credited back to the user account as balance (to pay road tolls).
Furthermore, vehicles outside Abu Dhabi must register before or within 10 days of crossing a toll point, which includes the Al Maqta Bridge, Mussaffah Bridge, Sheikh Khalifa Bridge, and Sheikh Zayed Bridge, otherwise, they will be given a fine starting AED 100 for the first 10 days of the grace period.
