Dubai sharpens eyes on roads with more radars


By Amira Agarib 

The Dubai Police have installed 52 new radars along Dubai roads and 31 more near traffic signals in Dubai.

1Colonel Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Director of the General Department of Traffic of the Dubai police, said the Dubai traffic department has installed 52 radars, mainly on Shaikh Zayed Road, and 31 at traffic signals as part of the Dubai Police’s strategy to reduce accidents.

Col Al Mazroui said the new radars are so sophisticated that they can catch erring vehicles coming from both directions and those that do not leave sufficient distance between vehicles.

They also have the ability to distinguish between small vehicles, trucks and buses; catch trucks that move on the roads during banned hours; photograph vehicles that run between tracks; and spot multiple vehicles even if they run parallel. More info
