Sources with the UAQ traffic police told Khaleej Times that the speed limit on the roads of Al Nifa has been set at 60kmph.

“A maximum buffer speed of 20kmph is allowed, and the new radars will start flashing at 81kmph.”

Recently, the UAQ police installed multiple radars in the emirate to catch speeding motorists.

“Some drivers ignore traffic rules and speed limits, posing a grave risk to road users' safety. It is mostly young drivers who are caught for speeding violations.”

“As per the federal traffic law, exceeding the maximum speed limit by more than 80kmph draws a fine of Dh3,000, along with 23 black traffic points and 60-day impoundment."

More radars - fixed and mobile - will be deployed along the roads of the emirate to curb speeding drivers, said the police.
