Under the new regulations, passengers failing to wear their seatbelts will receive a fine of Dh400.

 

Emiratis and expats expressed their support for proposed amendments to the traffic laws, particularly the upcoming mandatory rule for all drivers and passengers to simply, buckle-up.

Under the new regulations, which will come into force in three months, those failing to wear their seatbelt and fail to ensure children aged four and younger are seated in the appropriate child-seat, will receive a fine of Dh400, and four black points.

First-Lieutenant Ali H. Al Madfaei of the Abu Dhabi Police said the new law will help save lives on UAE roads. “The recent amendments will increase parental awareness in regards to child safety in vehicles.

  • Comments Off on Some dubai roads now have some 'friendly' radars that flash a warning when the driver is about to exceed the grace window of 20 km/hr.

Rumours have been doing the rounds in Dubai that speed limits on key roads have been revised, and the 20 km/hr window of radar flash has been done away with.

At the moment, radars on most roads are set to flash when the driver exceeds the stipulated speed limit by over 20 km per hour.

Khaleej Times did a quick check on the Dubai Police website, and has found that no such changes have been made to speed limits.

However, what has changed on the roads is that some radars have become “friendlier”. Instead of flashing after the driver exceeds the 20 km/hr window, these radars send out a warning flash when they find that a driver is about to go beyond the grace window. Therefore, don’t worry if you are driving at 118 km/hr on a road that has a 100 km/hr speed limit and you are flashed by a radar.

Here are the [...]

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) stressed the importance of educating motorists about preparations for safe driving during foggy and rainy conditions.

The call was part of RTA’s seasonal campaign launched during the final quarter of the year to raise drivers’ awareness of proper and safe practices of safe driving under such changing climatic conditions.

Engineer Metha bin Udai, CEO of RTA Traffic and Roads Agency called on motorists to exercise every caution during the days and weeks ahead, which have the potentials of thick fog blankets, and possibly rainfall; which is always associated with escalating traffic accidents due to wet roads.

During the campaign, which started early October and continues till the end of this year, the RTA inspectors distributed educative leaflets to drivers in several parts of Dubai in collaboration with Al Ahli Driving Institute.

The campaign focused on parking lots of Land Department, Dubai Courts, Department of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Dubai [...]

Over 35% of drivers in the UAE will have to shell out more for their fully comprehensive car insurance in 2017 as a result of newly introduced tariffs from the UAE Insurance Authority, according to an analysis from compareit4me.com, the Middle East’s leading financial comparison site.

The new tariff system, due to take effect on January 1, 2017, will see UAE insurers adopt minimum insurance premiums of Dh1,300 for saloon cars, and Dh2,000 for SUVs. The system also sets maximum insurance premium rates of no more than 5% of the value of a saloon car, or 7% of the value of an SUV.

However, with very few people in the UAE paying more than 5% or 7% for their insurance premiums (just 0.15% in 2016), the biggest effect of the new tariff system will be that people pay more at the lower end of the market.

According to statistics gleaned from compareit4me’s insurance comparison platform, [...]
