NEW RADAR DEVICE LAUNCHED TO DETECT OVERSPEEDING VIOLATIONS

The General Directorate of Traffic has launched patrol vehicles equipped with a modern radar device to cover external roads as well as internal ones from where many complaints on violations are received.

The radar, fitted inside the vehicle, was launched on the sidelines of the ‘Accident-Free Summer’ inside a civilian vehicle, and it can record violations of speeding while the patrol vehicle is moving, among other violations that put lives at risk.

Capt Shabib Mohamed al-Nuaimi of the Traffic Patrols explained that the new radar can be fitted into both civilian and official traffic patrol vehicles. It has several modern technical features, such as the ability to be operational while on the move and adopt infrared imaging. It does not use the ‘annoying’ flash lights, and is capable of filming traffic flow in both directions and can operate in different weather conditions and in six lanes.
