Qatar’s Traffic Control Report

         First of all, I want to show my gratitude for your time and concern towards my report. I assure you my proposition is understandable and reasonable to change speed limit of vehicles to match the use of the transportations. The use of speed limit is mainly for basic safety purpose. If a normal every day vehicles provide speed limit that excess 200km/h, it’s unnecessary and tempt the driver to go over the city speed limit. Doha, Qatar would be a secure city and the high death toll will decrease bringing new possibility for success.image00.gif

        The advantages and disadvantages of driving at high speed is a lot. One of the advantages is helping injured to reach hospital or safety place at once. The driver is able to save the person’s life, however might kill both of them by driving too fast. Another disadvantage of driving in high speed is that you missed out seeing few important details such as road symbols or traffic light and may result of QR 3,000 payment or warning.

        As you know, the speed limit in Qatar is 120km/h. These speed limits are mostly found in highways between cities such as from Doha to Al Khor, Al Wakra or Ras Laffan (a city/harbor made especially for oil companies). I’m amazed by the effort your country made to stop insane drivers by constructing a speed detector throughout the cities, even at stop lights. The CID agents’ works marvelously getting undercover on the area that was not covered by speed detector. In a dependable source, I found information showing your death toll and how your country manages to solve the problem. On the other hand, you cannot hope for young adults’ driver to stop driving recklessly in an instant by teaching them about save driving. The best way to solve it, is to get rid of the first thing that entice them; excessive speed limit. Expats kept blogging about the noise car racing made and how they do stunts in roundabouts. They may not harm themselves, but may possibly harm others. The Gulf Times News reported that,”The total number of road accidents last year was 20,455, with approximately 200 deaths, according to the Traffic Department.
