He emphasized that these amendments do not relate to deliberate hit-and-run incidents. The primary objective of these changes is to enhance road safety measures and establish clear guidelines regarding the responsibilities of both drivers and pedestrians in various traffic scenarios, according to Nabd.

In an attempt to enhance road safety, Imseis stressed the urgent need for infrastructure improvements, particularly in the capital and its provinces. This includes installing pedestrian crossings, traffic signals, and improving the management of pedestrian traffic.
