Traffic Cameras Soon Start Detecting Mobile Phone and Seatbelt Violations

The Traffic Directorate in the Kingdom said that it is almost done installing cameras that monitor drivers on their phone or who are not wearing a seatbelt.

The director general of traffic in the Kingdom, Col. Mohammed Al-Bassami, told Al-Hayat that “using a phone while driving is currently one of the main factors behind accidents in the Kingdom, and maybe the second after speed. Even if the causes are numerous, using a phone while driving remains the most dangerous one, and rates vary among regions.”

Al-Bassami said that drivers posting videos of themselves on social media while driving is considered “proof that they are using the phone while driving, giving the Traffic Directorate the right to give them tickets, as it is considered as a threat to public safety.”
