This isn't new news, but handy non-the-less

While confusion has been prevailing among motorists over the points and fines system imposed by the Traffic and Patrol Department, the Ministry of Interior is now posting all details on its website www.moi.gov.qa.

The ‘Point System in the Traffic Violations’ link provides information about Traffic Law No 19 of 2007 which was introduced on October 2. The Ministry has stated the points system “will help to ensure safe driving and to reduce traffic-related accidents, deaths and many casualties every year”.

The link marked ‘Violations and its Fine Amounts’ covers the 14 violations which cannot be settled by fines and have to be heard by the concerned court. The site also details the 114 traffic violations that can be covered by fines. Among the violations to be heard in a court of law are violating customs and norms of public morality inside the vehicle or allowing somebody to do so.

There's also a fine that's not on the website for the MOI...if you don't pay your ticket within the 2 month period, you get fined QR1 per day until you pay. Then the extra amount is added on to the total bill. Just found that tidbit out last week.

no problem..just didn't want anyone NOT to check the MOI site for tickets and get "surprised" by a larger amount than was expected!!
