- On July 1, the Middle East's first road-toll system came into effect as the Salik toll gates at Al Barsha and Al Garhoud went live. The initiative was the RTA's attempt to ease traffic on Shaikh Zayed Road and make people use alternative routes. A toll of Dh4 is automatically deducted each time a car passes under the Salik gate, with a maximum charge of Dh24 per day.
