"Impact of Law Enforcement and Traffic Safety Oversight"

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

 2-3 November 2016

The general framework of the symposium


Road accidents are a leading cause of death in many countries. It is estimated that approximately 1,240,000 people die annually in road accidents worldwide. Road traffic deaths and injuries also cause significant social and economic losses.

Given the magnitude of the great loss of life and the enormous material resources lost by road accidents, as well as the fact that they are truly human, they require the concerted efforts of all to achieve the goals of the Global Decade for Action for Road Safety 2011/2020.

The success of any effort to find a solution to this problem requires attention to all elements of the traffic process and familiarity with the various elements that cause these incidents, which include the road user (driver, passenger or passenger), the road itself, the vehicle, the surrounding weather and environmental conditions, education and awareness. Traffic laws - laws, regulations, regulations and instructions - regulate the traffic process in all its components and in all its aspects.

The use of law enforcement techniques is the primary aspect of traffic regulation and this has resulted in numerous studies on the development and implementation of strategies aimed at improving the efficiency and efficiency of police operations.

There have been numerous studies and research on the identification of ways and main axes that are related to how to reduce these incidents, which can be limited to the following basic elements:

- Environmental / Engineering.

- Education.

- Legislation and law enforcement.

- Human behavior.

- The culture of civil liability that the driver should have.

Since the most effective of these methods is law enforcement, which is based on controlling the behavior of road users through preventive, persuasive and punitive measures to bring about safe and efficient traffic movement, the traffic law enforcement process can be highly costly, Many stakeholders are ways to increase the efficiency and efficiency of implementation processes, and a range of methods available to ensure the desired viability.

The penalty is particularly important in reducing traffic violations and accidents as one of the means to prevent violations of traffic laws and regulations. The punishment resulting from the application of the law to the violators is not an end in itself but rather a means of achieving justice among all users of the road and the establishment of social justice on the one hand and deterrence on the other and on the other hand, which necessitates activating the role of irregularities in order to ensure the highest degree of credibility for laws related to the system Traffic safety and give them momentum and ability to positively influence the behavior of drivers and all road users.

It is also necessary to focus on the behavior of the user of the vehicle and urge him to avoid recklessness and avoid the excesses that we see daily in our roads, which is a fact to search and find the necessary approaches in order to be the driver in our Arab societies, like the driver in developed countries, which has full responsibility And abide by traffic regulations and the application of the law with all seriousness and civilized behavior.

Enforcement of the law alone is not enough. It should be preceded by efforts to prepare the appropriate ground to make respect for the laws a culture and a curriculum. This requires a sustained educational effort that results in civilized and civilized human behavior among all categories of road users. A means to perform services and facilitate the elimination of needs, not to cause loss of life and cause damage to the human and economic component.

In essence, the law is an approach for road users and to make them fully aware of their duties, rights and limits of freedom. The laws were enacted to serve the citizen, help him and enlighten him, not to repudiate and punish. The importance of feeling the culture of citizenship to the users of the roads is essential and necessary reflects the sense of responsibility towards others and civilized behavior must be available to everyone in spite of the size of communicative and technical variables and their impact on the human.

Objectives of the Symposium:

- The effectiveness of legislation and legal penalties imposed on violators of traffic rules, and their behavior, and its role in reducing violations.

- Highlight law enforcement strategies related to traffic, methods, methods and mechanisms of deterrence.

- Focus on the importance of law enforcement engagement in the implementation of educational strategies.

- Motivate road users to adopt responsible traffic behaviors, awareness of risk factors that threaten public safety on the roads, and protection and prevention measures for a safe environment.

- Emphasize the importance of United Nations legal conventions on road safety and measures adopted for the application of safety controls for vehicles and road engineering.

- Review the various local, regional and international experiences on the above and exchange experiences in this field.

Topics of the Symposium:

First: Legislation

- The current laws and their suitability for developments and traffic conditions, and their impact in reducing violations and traffic accidents.

- Targeting strategies and deter repeating infringements.

- Emphasis on penalties in general and in some serious offenses.

- Law enforcement mechanisms and liaison between stakeholders.

- Alternative penalties and their role in promoting the behavior of road users.

- Reducing the margin of tolerance levels in law enforcement at speed limits and their role in reducing the level of speeding and ensuring greater compliance with established speed limits.

- The importance of developing an integrated road safety policy, with long-term strategies emerging.
