Speed limit reduced on Sheikh Zayed Road, Emirates Road

by | News

In an effort to reduce accidents and promote safety in Dubai roads, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Dubai Police decided to lower the speed limit in two of its main roads.

“Lowering the speed limits on the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed and Emirates Roads is a result of elaborate traffic safety studies and analyses of traffic accident data along with their causes over the past years,” said engineer Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency, RTA.

Maitha said the decision intends to promote the safety of the users of the two roads, which records about 12,000 vehicles per hour per direction.

“The decision is mainly intended to curb traffic accidents resulting from over speeding, especially as the two roads witness huge volumes of heavy vehicles traffic in both directions. Controlling the speed limits is one of the most effective measures of reducing traffic accidents,” he added.

Dubai Police recorded 99 accidents resulting in six fatalities and 78 injuries at Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.

Lowering the speed limit is expected to reduce traffic fatalities and raise traffic safety levels in the emirate.

“The move is compatible with the Dubai Police strategy aimed at reducing traffic accidents to zero percent per 100 of the population,”  said Major General Eng. Advisor Mohammed Saif Al Zaffein, Assistant Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police.
