On Sunday, June 4, 2023, the General Directorate of Traffic (Muroor) in Saudi Arabia started automatic surveillance that targets three significant traffic violations. This implementation of a cutting-edge monitoring system marks a major step forward in enhancing road safety across the Kingdom by stringently tracking driver behaviour.
Understanding the New Automated Surveillance Measures
The newly installed surveillance measures will concentrate on:
- Heavy-duty trucks and equipment do not follow the right lane rules on multi-lane roads.
- Motorists neglect to use appropriate lights during night driving or under changing weather conditions that result in decreased visibility.
- Unlawful driving on footpaths or pedestrian-only areas where vehicles are forbidden.
This strategic move showcases Muroor’s determination to reinforce traffic regulation and heighten road safety in urban and rural areas alike.
