Traffic Accidents

Sadly traffic accidents are a frequent occurrence on Dubai’s busy roads. Repair shops are forbidden to repair any car (even if the damage is minor) without a police report, and the procedure for getting police reports is covered in detail in this section.

Driving conditions
Speed limits are usually 60 to 80km/h around town, while on main roads and roads to other emirates they are 100 to 120km/h. The limit is clearly indicated on signs. Both fixed and movable radar traps, and Dubai Traffic Police officers, are there to catch the unwary violator.
