The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has started colouring the asphalt red on parts of streets that are subject to changes in speed limits.
The process involved colouring all lanes in an eye-catching style to alert road users of the new speed limit. Asphalt colouring will also be used in phases at locations subject to speed changes on other vital roads in Dubai.
Traffic fatalities came down from 332 in 2006 to 166 in 2015, and mortality rates went down from 21.7 deaths per 100,000 people in 2006 to 3.5 per 100,000 people in 2016.
