Abu Dhabi is set to introduce minimum speed limits on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Road.
General Ahmed Saif bin Zaytoun Al Muhairi, director of Central Operations Sector at Abu Dhabi Police, said the minimum speed on the first and second lanes from the left will be 120kph, while the maximum speed remains at 140kph.
Motorists, who drive below 120kph on the first two lanes of the four-lane highway that links Abu Dhabi and Dubai, will be fined Dh400.
Abu Dhabi Police made the announcement on their social media channels on Thursday afternoon.
“The goal of the low-speed activation is to ensure the safety of drivers, to require slow vehicles to move on the right lanes and to always make way for vehicles with preference coming from behind or from the left,” Gen Al Muhairi said.
