DO YOU THINK THE RE­CENT DE­CI­SION TO LOWER THE SPEED LIM­ITS IN SOME PARTS OF MUS­CAT WILL BRING DOWN AC­CI­DENTS?

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Taha Hus­sain al Zad­jali Safety of­fi­cer It is a good move by the au­thor­i­ties, which will help check speed­ing on city roads and ul­ti­mately bring down ac­ci­dents. How­ever, we need more radars on the roads where speed has been re­duced, like Dar­sait to Wadi Kabir road, as peo­ple are still seen break­ing the spec­i­fied limit.

Uzair As­gar Busi­ness­man Of course bring­ing down speed lim­its helps in hav­ing safer roads and it is a good move by the au­thor­i­ties. We still need bet­ter sur­veil­lance to keep a check on rogue driv­ers as it is only a few who break the rules and cre­ate prob­lems for oth­ers.

Manoj An­chan Fi­nan­cial sec­tor High-speed lim­its within city is not al­ways the best thing for safe road trans­port. Au­thor­i­ties recog­nis­ing that is a good thing. We hope more such mea­sures are taken to curb speed­ing and bring down re­sult­ing in­juries and deaths.

Na­jeeb al Balushi Pri­vate sec­tor em­ployee Low­er­ing the lim­its will ob­vi­ously help in re­duc­ing ac­ci­dents but there are many who con­tinue to flout the rules. Peo­ple still drive at 120km/hr where the limit is 100km/hr and 100km/hr where it is 80km/hr, and only slow down see­ing a speed cam­era.

Saleh al Maskari Banker Speed­ing is the main cause of most ac­ci­dents. Re­duc­ing the speed lim­its will surely boost con­fi­dence of those driv­ers who were in­tim­i­dated by fast­mov­ing traf­fic. It will also help check those speed­ing and bul­ly­ing oth­ers on roads.
