Lt. General HH Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, reviewed the results achieved during the first three weeks of the assessment period of the results of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) Government Accelerators team’s work. The results were reviewed during the team’s meeting chaired by HH Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan today (Wednesday) at Al Ittihad Hall in the Ministry of Interior.

The results highlighted a 50% decrease in fatalities resulting from traffic accidents on the five roads specified at the UAE level, namely: Al Sila Road in Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi-Al Ain Road, Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, Maliha Road in Sharjah, and Sheikh Mohamad bin Zayed Road in Umm al-Quwain.

The meeting discussed initiatives executed by the team focusing on four principal fields: traffic control, traffic engineering, traffic awareness and ambulance and rescue services.

The meeting was attended by Major General Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, Secretary General of the Office of HH Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior; and Colonel Mohammed bin Dalmouj Al Dhaheri, Strategy and Performance Development Director General; along with a number of high ranking officers and members of the MoI’s Government Accelerators team.

Government accelerators are a future-focused work mechanism, which includes joint work teams from government, private and academic sectors. Five core sectors will be key thrust areas under an ambitious plan to achieve the national agenda goals accelerating the implementation of the strategic government projects through dedicated and innovative workspaces comprehending joint work teams that operate under the supervision of a group of trainers, supervisors and global competencies, to provide intensive programs in short periods.

Government accelerators provide services to support the various involved government agencies, whose primary goal is to accelerate the achievement of the national agenda’s objectives in four key areas i.e. national indicators, policies, programs and initiatives, in addition to government services. It includes forming joint work teams from various state entities, to address the challenges and achieve the goals, by leveraging global experiences and innovations, as well as achieving leadership and excellence in government work through the implementation of projects and experiences through pioneering and innovative work methods to ensure quick results and sustainability.

It is worth mentioning that the MoI is leading the challenge team to "Reduce accident fatalities on five highways.” To achieve this objective, the ministry has taken a number of measures and formed a government accelerators work team, which includes representatives of strategic partners and of traffic and patrols’ departments across the UAE’s police general headquarters. Work is currently underway on relevant plans and strategies towards achieving this goal.

The ministry launched an awareness campaign “The Safer You are, The Happier They Are” across all media as a part of these steps. The Security Media Department at the MoI is coordinating with the police general headquarters participating in the campaign, by launching awareness messages through websites and official accounts on the ministry and the police general headquarters’ social media accounts, in order to raise awareness about the causes of fatal accidents and how to avoid them.


The Umm Al Quwain Police General Headquarters increased its efforts and focus on Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road in Umm Al Quwain to reduce accident fatalities, as a part of the objectives of the government accelerators.

The Traffic and Patrols Department in Sharjah Police Headquarters organized a field study in cooperation with its strategic partners to evaluate and manage road speeds in the Emirate of Sharjah. The study especially covers roads that scored the highest number of major accidents that resulted in fatalities and serious injuries. It is destined to enhance traffic safety on these roads.

Sharjah Police lowered the limited speed on Maliha Road from 120 to 100 km/h for the duration the period of developing the road and completing its maintenance. This step aims to ensure the safety of road users and decrease major traffic accidents.
