Speed limits changed, buffer removed in emirate

Abu Dhabi Police announced on Wednesday the removal of speed buffer in the emirate.

In a statement issued on social media, ADP said that starting from August 12, all speed limits in the Capital will be changed, emphasising that speed buffer on all roads will also be removed.

Currently, most roads in the Capital have a buffer that allows motorists to travel 20kmph faster than what is advertised as the speed limit without being penalised or fined.

From August 12 onwards, drivers traveling on a road with a speed limit of 100kph, will be fined for traveling 101kph.

So, for example, a motorist driving on an 80kmph road will be flashed if they even cross 81kmph as show in their Instagram post.

Major General Mohammed Khalfan Al Romaithi, Commander-in-Chief of Abu Dhabi Police and a member of the Executive Council, said that the decision was taken based on traffic safety studies.

It aims to achieve the highest levels of safety in Abu Dhabi .

Earlier this month, the police had revealed that there were plans to abolish a speed limit buffer on certain roads.

Enhance road safety

Abu Dhabi Police adopted a set of recommendations and technical procedures that will contribute to implementing the stages of the decision.
?
Major General Al Romaithi elaborated that the decision was taken based on scientific studies carried out by a specialised team of the General Command of Abu Dhabi Police, the Department of Transport and the Department Of Urban Planning And Municipalities.
?
He pointed out that the studies included a traffic survey to identify the behaviour of drivers and change in speed as per the road’s speed limit, and comparisons of standard speed limits and buffers with other countries that have achieved outstanding results in traffic safety levels and benefitted from similar changes.
?
Major General Al Romaithi thus called on the drivers to follow the new speed limits which have been set considering the development and use of road network with the increase in the number of vehicles and drivers.
?
He stressed the keenness of the UAE’s leadership and its interest in the safety and security of road users, providing top international standards in planning road infrastructure projects and utilising latest international systems and practices, in order to preserve the lives and reduce the number of deaths resulting from traffic accidents.
?
Major General Al Romaithi explained that the public will be aware of the new speed limits and removal of the buffer on internal and external roads in the Emirate through a comprehensive awareness campaign. More
