Bahrain’s House of Representatives will on Thursday hold an extraordinary session to discuss the traffic policies of the government, traffic rules and its violations. The session will be held in the presence of government institutions, including the General Directorate of Traffic.
The session hopes to find a solution to public grievances over traffic rules and its implementation mechanisms, and the hefty increase of traffic fines.
On April 3, Prime Minister HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa had ordered the authorities, including the directorate and Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry, to reconsider speed limits on the Kingdom’s main roads and highways, affirming that that the ultimate goal of the law is to avoid wrong traffic habits and not to impose fines.
