Ras Al Khaimah: New road radars have been installed by the Department of Traffic and Patrols in Ras Al Khaimah.

The move is part of the comprehensive traffic safety plan to install new radars at the internal roads and highways in Ras Al Khaimah.

The radar detection speed at Mohammad Bin Salem Road has been specified at 120km/h.

This will help curb the traffic accidents leading to deaths and serious injuries in recent times.

Colonel Abdullah Ali Al Munkis, Director of the Traffic and Patrol Department at Ras Al Khaimah Police, said the new radars were installed to cut traffic accidents.

The radars will help to reduce road accidents and is part of a larger traffic safety plan in the Emirate to encourage people to slow down because they are aware that they be slapped with high fines when caught on camera.

“Radars can detect not only speeding, but a whole range of driving offences,”, colonel Al Munkis added.

The installation of new radars follows acts of vandalism committed against radar cameras set up in Ras Al Khaimah.
