Dubai and UAE "Fairy Fines" or "Phantom Fines"

[Update 2017: More recently it seems that people have been more successful in disputing incorrect fines so perhaps it is worth trying?]

It has been known for people to receive fines from a different emirate when they weren't there, or fines when they were out of the country. Some residents have even discovered that they've received parking or speeding tickets while their car was supposed to be in the police impound yard. Trying to get one of these cleared up is going to involve enough time and energy that you might wish you hadn't bothered by the end of it - and more than likely you'll end up having to pay the fine anyway since the traffic department seems to be quite unhelpful at trying to resolve such issues.

Sometimes fines don't show up for over a year - even several years. Again, it's far easier to smile, pay the fine when it does appear, and go and do something in Dubai more interesting for the rest of the day.

Residents of Dubai say they are receiving text messages informing them of traffic offences committed while they were asleep, or outside the UAE, or in a location nowhere near where the offence was supposed to have occured.
