The main findings are that injury severity declined significantly in the 22 months following implementation of the MUL; but that accident frequency increased by: Road safety audit DoT of Abu Dhabi introduced a road safety audit (PDF, KB) to be completed for all new highway projects; this audit would cover the phases of design, construction and post-construction.
