Dubai roads change colour to red to indicate speed limits.

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has started coloring the asphalt red on parts of streets that are subject to changes in speed limits.Roads such as Oud Metha Street near Bu Kadrah Interchange along the extension of Dubai-Al Ain Street, where the maximum speed limit has been reduced from 100 to 80 kilometers per hour.

Maitha bin Adai, CEO of the RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency, said: “The experiment was carried out at a certain location on Oud Metha Street, near Bu Kadrah Interchange along the Dubai-Al Ain Street. The process involved coloring all lanes in an eye-catching style to alert road users of the new speed limit. Asphalt coloring will also be used in phases at locations subject to speed changes on other vital roads in Dubai. Therefore, we expect motorists to get used to this for their own safety and avoid offenses and accidents resulting from speeding, as per the RTA’s vision of a “Safe and Smooth Transport for All.

“It is stressed that this location is experimental, and the idea will next be implemented on Sheikh Zayed Road near the fifth interchange where the speed limit has been reduced from 120 kph to 100 kph. It will also be applied to the Jebel Ali-Lehbab Road near Lehbab, where the speed limit has been reduced from 120 kph to 100 kph so that motorists can avoid speeding and radar tickets. The experiment will be evaluated to verify its impact on drivers’ attitudes. It is expected that the procedure will significantly increase compliance with specified speeds and avoid potential accidents,” added Maitha bin Adai.
