Building on that success, the RTA, in association with Dubai Police, has embarked on phase two of the campaign which focuses on highlighting the global practices in specifying speed limits on roads. “The campaign will also stress on improving road safety and minimising accidents,” Maitha said. The first phase, which ran for three weeks, was meant to announce the launch of the Black Points System. “Phase two, which will run for six months, will focus on educating the public on traffic behaviour that warrants implementation of the Black Points System,” the official said.
