Kabayan, kung nakasanayan mo’ng hinahapit ang byahe papasok o papauwi, at sagad sa maximum allowable speed limit ang takbo mo, basahin mo ito. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the General HQ of Dubai Police have announced that the reduction of the speed limit on the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and the Emirates Road from 120 k/h to 110 k/h across the sectors in Dubai should take effect as of this Sunday, October 15th. The decision has been taken as part of the two parties’ efforts to curb traffic accidents and enhance the safety of road users.
A periodic review is carried out to speed limits on some vital streets and highways in Dubai to adjust the speed limits up or down depending on the condition of the road and the surrounding environment, in coordination with strategic partners.
Layunin din ng panukalang ito ang tuluyan pang pababain ang bilang ng road-related accidents sa bansa. Ang mga tala galing sa Dubai Police ay nagpapakita na noong first half of this year, Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road was the scene of 99 accidents resulting in six fatalities and 78 injuries.
Noon namang 2016, the highway saw 196 accidents resulting in 33 deaths and 249 injuries.
Similarly, the Emirates Road witnessed 40 accidents during the first half of this year resulting in 10 fatalities and 75 injuries.
Last year, the highway saw 86 accidents involving 29 deaths and 147 injuries.
The RTA and Dubai Police are coordinating several preventive measures to maintain the safety of road users. These include changing the speed limit signs to 110 k/h instead of 120 k/h and the directional and awareness signage; which in turn govern the traffic relationship between road users.
