ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Thursday, January 28th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
The Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police announced the activation of 25 new radars on the Razeen-Al Wagan Road and Truck Road in Al Ain. This step is part of the strategic priority of making the roads a safer place. It is also part of the traffic safety plan of limiting driving with high speeds on the roads and intensifying traffic control by installing radars on main roads in order to improve traffic safety.
Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Badr Ahmed Al Harithi, Head of the Traffic and Road Safety Engineering in the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police, noted that the radar speed on Razeen-Al Wagan Road has been set at 120 kph, while on Truck Road it was set at 81 kph. He also asserted that the main goal of installing the radars is to improve traffic safety and increase commitment to the designated speed limits.
He also called upon drivers to pay attention, reduce speed, and commit to the law in order to maintain their own and others’ safety. He highlighted the positive achievement of the reduction of road fatalities in the emirate of Abu Dhabi last year.
He also asserted that radars have a positive effect in enhancing traffic safety levels in many locations by reducing speeding violations, which are one of the violations that most endanger road users’ lives.
