Man pays only Dh40 Salik toll in 5 years of driving between Dubai, Sharjah

A motorist discovered that he still has a remaining balance of Dh10 left on his account on his Salik tag even after driving between Dubai and Sharjah for over five years.

The man identified as Anjesh Thomas, an Indian national is living at Sharjah’s Al Muwaileh area.

The 38-year-old man said that he was able to find out his balance when he tried to pass the Salik gate again last week and found that it still has Dh10. The man said that he never reloaded the tag since he bought it together with his car in 2014.

Thomas said that he bought the tag and his car at the same time.

His car has registered at least 83,000 kilometers of driving distance and shares that he made it a habit to consistently avoid driving through Salik gate from his home in Sharjah to Dubai and vice versa.
