Morocco will acquire a smart road-security system to automatically monitor road infractions and identify traffic offenses that generally go unnoticed.
Rabat – The Ministry of Equipment, Transport and Logistics, will purchase several intelligent radars that would allow better traceability of traffic offenses other than speeding, daily newspaper Al Massae reported today.
The interactive radars record the non-respect of the stop sign, the defect of a vehicle rear lights and the overtaking in a lane where it is not allowed.
Al Massae added that the ministry will also repair several out-of-service radars to allow a better road security.
The introduction of these new intelligent radars will enable the police to have a complete view of nearly 20 kilometers and prevent the “tricks” some drivers use.
The ministry plans to place the new radars in high accident roads and in certain turns.
Some of the radars can calculate the journey duration of each vehicle in the highways and enable the detection of speeding, the newspaper concluded.
The ministry launched in April 2016 an application that allows traffic offenders to receive an sms of their infractions recorded by road radars.
The application, “Infraction routieres,” also informs offenders of the type offense they committed, the method of payments, and the number of points corresponding the type of infraction.
“Infractions routieres” is available for free in Google Play and Apple Store in Arabic and French.
Since its launch, the application has been downloaded more than 500,000 times.
