The radars will also be able to detect trucks and other heavy vehicles that are not allowed to use the road.
Five new traffic radars have been put up on the road from Sharjah’s Shees area to Khor Fakkan. Monitoring vehicles’ speed, the system started operating today, November 2, according to a report on Arabic daily Al Bayan.
The Sharjah Police said the radars were installed because several motorists had recently reported speeding incidents on this particular road to Khor Fakkan.
Lt-Col Mohammad Alai Al Naqbi, Director of Traffic and Patrols Department, said the system would be able to detect speedsters on both sides of the highway. The radars will also be able to catch trucks and other vehicles that are not allowed to use the road.
Two speed limits are being implemented on the Shees-Khor Fakkan road, 80kmph and 100kmph, Lt-Col Al Naqbi said.
