AMMAN — The legal committee in the House of Representatives will start its first meetings on Sunday to discuss the amended draft of the traffic law for the year 2023. The Council of Ministers had previously approved the justifications for amending the traffic law and proceeded with the necessary procedures for its issuance according to regulations.اضافة اعلان

The new traffic law aims to enhance traffic safety and reduce accidents by imposing stricter penalties on violations that directly or indirectly lead to loss of life. Additionally, it will tighten penalties for repeat offenders of traffic safety rules, which pose a risk to road users and public and private properties.

Furthermore, the draft law proposes the formation of a higher council for traffic safety responsible for setting traffic policies and unifying various efforts related to traffic and transportation.

The purpose of the draft law is to keep up with the significant increase in the number of vehicles and drivers, as well as the technological developments that have occurred in vehicle types, specifications, and equipment. The law will also adopt electronic data for vehicles, drivers, violations, surveillance, and accident plans.
