The section of the E11 has had its upper speed limit permanently restricted…

Starting today, the morning of Monday September 26, the Al Qurm Street section of the Sheikh Zayed Road (E11) in Abu Dhabi will operate a reduced speed limit.

Speed cameras will now be set to 100kph, a reduction of 20kph from the former 120kph limit (and we promise we didn’t use a calculator for that arithmetic), on inbound and outbound sections of the Qasr al Bahr interchange.

Penalties for speeding start at Dhs300 for speeds up to 20kph over the maximum limit, but can rise to Dhs3,000 with 23 black points and vehicle impound for 60 days for speeds in excess of 70kph over the limit.

Remember, in Abu Dhabi, there are no 20kph allowances on top of the stated limit.

You can pay traffic fines accrued in Abu Dhabi online, via the Darb app or through the police Call Center 800 3333.

You should always follow the speed limit indicator signs on the side of the road as well as digital signs showing temporary speed limit alterations.

Abu Dhabi Police warned of some in operation this morning before later confirming “speed limits on all the external roads of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi are now back to normal.”
