Dubai: Reiterating safety parameters, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), in association with Dubai Police, is stepping up the campaign to force owners of quad bikes to register them.

Annual registration and inspection of quad bikes is already mandatory and not doing so is a punishable offence by law, according to the RTA. The authorities are, however, willing to give more time to quad bikers to fall in line.

“We are trying to help the teenagers who ride the quad bikes to get their vehicles registered. In the last six months, we have got a good response, with dozens of bikes already registered. Our campaign involves spreading the information about registration and taking care of safety measures,” said Ahmad Hashem Behroozian, CEO of RTA’s Licensing Agency.

There have been 10 fatalities in more than 125 quad bike accidents in Dubai over the last four years, and the RTA’s campaign to register the bikes is part of its efforts to regulate their use and reduce the risk factor. More info
