QATAR-National Traffic Safety Committee – Road Safety
Qatar is a fine example of good Road Safety Management in the Middle East and amongst developing nations.
The National Traffic Safety Committee is the lead agency, chaired by the Prime Minister. The 2nd 5-year Action Plan of the National Road Safety Strategy was launched in 2013 and recently updated to embrace a bespoke Safe System to reflect the unique characteristics of Qatar which include a rapid population and infrastructure growth, high vehicle ownership levels and a high percentage of migrant workers.
Despite the enormous traffic growth, road traffic fatalities have reduced from 235 in 2013 to 177 in 2017.
