What is the Salik Gate?

The residents of Dubai are not unknown to the Salik gates. First toll gate is used in different places in Dubai. A person having his vehicle have to pay the 4 AED toll fee. Now, these gates are used in Dubai in many places. These are actually RFID (Radio-frequency identification) based gates. This is an automatic identification method, depending upon storing and saving data using devices called RFID tags.
