the maximum speed on the gulf road is 80 but if you're asking if you'll get caught by a speeding camera if you're going 90, then no you shouldn't get caught since the cameras give a bit of leeway.

For a sure answer, All the Over Speed cameras installed in Kuwait, are to capture once +20 km/hr are detected. (This way no one can claim or contest that their speed readings were showing less). So for a
1- Speed Limit 120 km/hr -> The capture takes place at 140km/hr,
2- Speed Limit 100 km/hr -> The capture takes place at 120 km/hr,
3- Speed Limit 80 km/hr -> The capture takes place at 100km/hr

But with the recent, new over speed cameras, the Left emergency lanes have been included, therefore anyone driving on the left emergency lane will be captured above 45 km/hr (But not sure at what speed the camera captures the car). Also, right now, it does not capture all the vehicles driving in the emergency lane between 10 pm and 6 am.

The Over speed/Traffic signal cameras should also be considered. They captures vehicles passing at the Red lights. PLUS they also capture vehicles travelling at speeds over 100 to 120 km/hr at the green lights (This is rare)

Why you giving all this evidence??  I’m sure most people know. You are just triggering the MOI  to correct the speed limit ffs

I can confirm the emergency lane camera will catch at any speed over 45. I was demonstrating to a friend how it wouldn't if you drive under 65km, i was embarrassingly (and hilariously to them) wrong.
