The Dubai Police are to soon install 20 high-tech radars to nab and monitor road shoulder violations. The police tested one prototype that has proved to be successful after it recorded 134 violators in 2 hours.
Major-General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, the Commander-In-Chief of Dubai Police said that 20 such radars will be installed on the Emirates road to prevent hard shoulder violations, after the prototype proved to be successful.
The Dubai Police claim that the new radar is highly accurate and is intended to nab violators of road safety, especially those who drive into hard shoulders of the road. Violators will have their car impounded for 30 days and will receive a fine of Dh600 along with six black points to their traffic record.
One mobile radar that looks like a trash can caught 35,000 speeding violators on the internal roads of Dubai in February and March. The radar only catches speeds in excess of 90km/h, where permissible speed is 60km/h.
