In a significant development, the Abu Dhabi Police have officially declared a reduction in the speed limit on Khalid Bin Sultan Street, effective from November 1, 2023. This strategic decision is part of their ongoing efforts to enhance road safety and traffic management in the emirate.
Reducing Speed for Greater Safety
The Abu Dhabi Police, through their official channel, X (formerly Twitter), have announced a notable modification to the speed limits on Khalid Bin Sultan Street in the Al Ain region. Commencing from November 1, 2023, the speed limit on this major road will be decreased to 80km/h.
Implementing the Change

1. Enhancing Traffic Safety
Reducing the speed limit is a strategic step towards enhancing traffic safety on Khalid Bin Sultan Street. Lowering the speed will allow motorists to react more effectively to unexpected situations, thereby reducing the likelihood of accidents and collisions.
