Motorists, however, are still urged to abide by the new posted speed limits in Abu Dhabi, while drivers can use their smart applications or traffic police websites to check their registered traffic-related violations prior to making a complaint.
The new radars were introduced to reduce traffic violations and accidents on the roads. They were installed to catch motorists who speed, have bad lane discipline and overtake on the hard shoulder.

All 4,096 speed signs were been updated with the correct speed limits. The process took 24 hours to complete, with new signs showing speed limits of 120kph, 140kph and 160kph.
