A road safety programme is being planned in the UAE for cyclists, electric bicycle riders and motorcyclists. The programme is called Safe Riding for Bicycle Users and aims to encourage safe use of bicycles, electric bicycles and motorcycles by riders.

The country’s unified traffic campaign for 2024 is being managed by the Federal Traffic Council on behalf of the Ministry of Interior. The campaign will be carried out over the first three months of 2024 and in three languages, Arabic, English and Urdu.

This campaign follows positive road safety moves seen in the UAE, which saw a 10% drop in road deaths  for 2022 compared with 2021, according to the data from the Ministry of Interior.
