Road User Code


Guidance in Case of an Accident

If you are involved in an accident you must do the following:

Speed Limit Compliance

Speeding not only endangers your life but the lives of other road users as well. More than 60 per cent of road crash fatalities and injuries are caused by excessive speeding. The maximum speed limits on various roads are shown in Red Circle signs posted along the road, as indicated below.



Driving in Bad (foggy) Weather

Drive Cautiously During Sandstorms or Foggy Conditions


Bad weather conditions such as fog and sandstorms reduces visibility and sometimes makes the road slippery thereby increasing the risk of accidents.


 If possible, postpone your trip until the weather conditions improve.

Driving at Night


Drive Cautiously at Night

Due to diminished visibility, driving at nights poses a higher risk for accidents. So be extra careful on the road.





Use of a Mobile Phone

Do Not Use a Mobile Phone while Driving


Using a mobile phone while driving can distract a driver and cause them to make mistakes that can result in serious or even fatal crashes. Using a mobile phone or a similar device while driving increases the probability of an accident by 4 times.


Driving through Work Zones

Driving Cautiously through Work Zones

Work zones are defined as any roadway or utility construction, or maintenance or repair works occurring within or near a road right of way. Generally, temporary roadways are provided in work zones where drivers are expected to drive more carefully.
