Under new rules introduced, delivery bikes can only be driven in the right-hand lane of roads where speeds exceed 100 km/h.

Three-lane roads that allow delivery motorcycles to travel on two lanes from the passenger side at speeds exceeding 100 kilometers per hour. The same rules apply on four-lane streets, while on five-lane roads, delivery drivers can travel in the rightmost three lanes at speeds exceeding 100km/h.

According to the Joint Traffic Safety Committee, “the decision is in line with a framework aimed at regulating the flow of road traffic and maintaining a high level of safety for all road users by limiting dangerous driving by delivery motorbike drivers.”

The new rules will help deter drivers from speeding on busy roads and highways, failing to use signals or obey road directions, driving in the wrong direction, swerving and more, the commission said.

The program is part of a comprehensive program aimed at reducing the number of traffic accidents that can result in driver injury or death. A number of decisions will be implemented on Abu Dhabi’s roads and intersections, including a review of speed limits on roads.
