Turkey General Directorate of Security (EGM) issued a statement last Wednesday denying rumors on increasing traffic fines in Turkey.

 “False information has been recently circulated on social media under the heading ‘New Traffic Fines’,” EGM posted on Twitter, explaining that it undertakes an annual general assessment and shares it with the public opinion, demanding the stakeholders not to rely on unreliable information.

Social media accounts have circulated the alleged list titled “New Traffic Fines”, which includes high traffic fines in Turkey; the rumor has also been circulated on WhatsApp among Syrians.
