New speed limit rules in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi Police will enforce new speed limit regulations starting next week.

Police patrol cars will monitor the speed limits in residential areas whereas the radars will monitor traffic on highways, revealed Colonel Hussain Ahmad Al Harithi, director of Abu Dhabi Traffic and Patrols Department.

The speed limit on highways will be 140 kilometres per hour with an allowance of 20 kms per hour, which means that a motorist would be be fined if he crosses 160 km per hour on highways, said Al Harithi.

The speed limit in residential areas will be 20-40km per hour.

These changes have been brought about after a lot of research and will be enforced to ensure road safety.
