Ajman: Ajman Police have slashed speed limits on some internal roads in the emirate to bolster safety through slower moving traffic, said a top police official.

Ajman traffic authorities have decided to cut the speed limit for trucks and buses to 60km/h from 80km/h following a series of deadly single- and multiple-vehicle accidents that police said involved high rates of speed and driver error.

Speed radars will catch vehicles now travelling at 81km given that cameras are programmed to give motorists a 20km room for error in their rate of travel.

Brigadier Shaikh Sultan Al Nuaimi, Deputy Chief of Ajman Police, said the new speed limit has been enforced on six internal roads in the emirate.
