Strict steps cut accidents, road death toll, says Al-Ali ‘Speeding over 190 km, reckless driving unpardonable’

KUWAIT CITY, March 13: The number of deaths caused by road accidents has declined significantly due to the strict measures taken by the officers against those proven to have violated traffic regulations, says Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs in the Ministry of Interior Major General Abdulfattah Al-Ali according to press release. Speaking at the opening of the Second Traffic exhibition as part of the GCC Traffic Week, Al-Ali disclosed the activities lined up for this week are different from previous years since the inception of the festival 30 years ago, due to the modern technology being used by the Traffic Sector. He asserted the latest technology has allowed the sector to improve its performance in a bid to better serve the public.

Affirming that the opportunity to pay blocked traffic violations remains open until the end of March which is part of the GCC Traffic Week, Al-Ali clarified the traffic offenses that cannot be unblocked include reckless driving and speeding of more than 190 kms per hour as such acts pose a grave threat to the lives of the people. Meanwhile, the exhibition showcased the smart traffic police patrol and automated traffic motorcycle; in addition to demonstrations on how the traffic speed and surveillance cameras operate, among other devices for the Traffic Police Department. Among those who attended the exhibition were official delegations participating in the GCC Traffic Week, a number of traffic officers and media teams from the Department of Media Security in the Ministry of Interior with the participation of the Kuwait Fire Service Directorate and the Medical Emergency Unit at the Ministry of Health.
