Speed limit on expressway to be reduced to 60km/h

Speed limit on expressway to be reduced to 60km/h

By QL Videos

With the increasing number of fatalities on Qatar's roads, the traffic department is looking to implement a lower speed limit in certain traffic hotspots in and around the country.

This is to reduce the number of high-speed collisions on the road, and ease the traffic flow.

The speed limit will be dropped to 60km/h in areas of high congestion like the Doha Expressway (February 22nd Street) with the aim of stopping rash driving.

Motorists found violating the speed limit will be levied standard traffic fines and points as per the traffic laws.

One of the leading causes of death in Qatar is road traffic collisions, mainly due of reckless driving by impatient drivers.

Also, in order to ease the burden on the public, the department is considering completely removing the speed limit on some highways on the outskirts of Doha such as parts of Shamal road and Salwa road.

Watch the video to find out when this change will be implemented.
