DUBAI — The Dubai Taxi Agency of the Roads and Transport Agency (RTA) has fixed a speed limit of 120kmph for its taxis on highways.

The implementation of the new rule follows the ‘Safe and Smooth Transport for All’ campaign being run by RTA since March.

Abdul Aziz Malik, CEO of Dubai Taxi Agency of the RTA, stated that besides satellite monitoring, a system to set maximum speed limit is now in place in all taxis operating in Dubai.

“It has been coordinated with car-manufacturing companies that the speed limit of new vehicles to be supplied will be set in advance. “Dubai Taxi Agency followed up this matter with the companies and launched several awareness campaigns for implementing this decision among drivers. It was made clear that action will be taken against violating drivers as per the applicable rules and regulations,” said Malik.

“Implementation of this decision started on March 1 following installation of the required systems in all taxi. Dubai Taxi Agency aims to ensure the highest level of safety for all users of Dubai roads,” he said.
