“We are keen to streamline the business of the delivery sector to ensure its growth in an environment that caters to safety and security concerns. We are also keen on improving the traffic safety level of motorbike riders and road users and serving the interests of all stakeholders. The pandemic led to a surge of demand for delivery service companies to meet the public needs of goods and products, which dictated the need to regulate the business of this sector to ensure delivering quality services to customers,” underlined Al Tayer.  

The primary focus of the meeting was to discuss the scope of delivery service via motorbikes as the accident rate of motorbikes hikes 25% from 300 accidents in 2020 to 400 accidents in 2021, as per the official statics. 

The meeting also witnessed discussion on the roadmaps and numerous outreach campaigns, with the aim to establish a traffic safety level.
