Cam-fitted cars to trap violators

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 29: The General Traffic Department (GTD) said to deter and identify motorists who park vehicles in ‘No Parking’ zones and obstruct traffic flow especially in front of government offices, commercial complexes and markets will use ‘traffic cars’, reports Al-Rai daily. Security sources told the daily about two years ago, the GTD had pressed into service vehicles equipped with sophisticated cameras on a test basis to track vehicles parked in ‘No parking areas’ and those who obstruct traffic, especially on busy streets, now plans to sign a contract with these cars to monitor and identify violating vehicles.

The sources added “these cars have a built-in video recording system which monitors and photographs the violating vehicles and then the footage is downloaded into the GTD system and violations are recorded against the drivers without the need to manually issue a citation by the traffic police officer.”
