There are currently 1,803 electric cars registered in Dubai.
The move is all part of Dubai’s Green Mobility Strategy.
Maitha bin Adai, the CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency at RTA, said: “This initiative complements a previous initiative launched in 2018 designating parking slots in various parts of Dubai to electric vehicles exclusively. It contributes to improving the air quality, curbing carbon emissions and enhancing sustainability besides encouraging the public to own these types of vehicles.”
The need for speed
We’ve all wanted to run away from 2020, but one driver took that to extremes when he was caught speeding in Sharjah at 278km/hour.
And yes, that is the highest speed detected in the UAE. But amazingly, only this year according to Captain Saud Al Shaiba, Director of Traffic Awareness and Traffic Media Branch. Which is very, very worrying.
So far this year, 274 drivers have been fined for speeding above 200km/hour in Sharjah. Where on earth are you all going in such a hurry?
