If you get pulled over for speeding in Abu Dhabi, you can’t use the old “I didn’t see the posted speed limit” excuse because it’s right there in front of you. There’s no missing the colored lanes with painted speed limits right on the roads.

Since Abu Dhabi has recently updated their speed limits for certain roads in and around the city, the municipality thought it would be a good idea to give drivers a unique warning to slow down. Sections of the road are now paved bright red asphalt and feature the new speed limit painted right on the lanes.

Officials say that the new measure will enhance road safety and ensure that drivers always know the speed limit.
