Radars to catch drivers speeding between two cameras

Read Later

The new upgrade will be implemented on existing vitronic or Burj radar

Dubai: An updated version of Dubai Traffic Police radars will soon detect motorists who speed between radars by calculating the average speed between two speed cameras.

Average speed control, also called “section control” or “point-to-point control” is a relatively new speed enforcement technique.

The system measures the average speed of a vehicle over a section of road. The vehicle is identified when entering the enforcement section and again when leaving it. The average speed can be calculated based on the time interval between these two points.

Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, director of Dubai Traffic Police, said they have been trying it out on the Dubai-Hatta Road.

The new upgrade will be implemented using vitronic radar (Burj radar).

He said the system will be used to monitor high-risk stretches of roads where speed-related accidents are a cause of deaths or serious injuries.

Brig Al Mazroui said, “This enforcement solution has been proven to be very effective. It has been noticed around the world that average speed enforcement improves driver behaviour, which noticeably reduces traffic deaths and serious injuries.”

“As the vehicle’s speed is monitored throughout, speeding between cameras will no longer be an issue, which will ensure smoother traffic flow,” he noted.

It is unclear when exactly the cameras will be in operation.
