DUBAI – The speed limit will be cut on a Fujairah highway from July 1 in a bid to boost road safety, according to the Fujairah Police.
Police said that the buffer speed limit will be changed from 140kph to 120kph on Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Road.
The set speed limit on the road remains at 100kph, but drivers can currently speed at 40kph more to 140kph before the radars flash.
Police said that on Monday, this speed buffer will be halved from 40kph to 20kph, which means motorists can speed at up to 120kph before radars flash.
Speed cameras will be modified to reflect the change in speed limit from the Yabsa roundabout to the Thoban area.
“Many residential areas are now located along the road, therefore, the radars speed limits had to be reduced for road safety,” said Colonel Saleh Al Dhanhani, deputy director of traffic at Fujairah Police. ICA/Expat Media
