Seatbelt, mobile phone violators in Saher focus
The company that manages and runs Saher traffic cameras is planning to install additional equipment to monitor seatbelt and mobile phone violations besides speeding.
A source was quoted by a local newspaper as saying that the company will apply the new system soon.
The source said two new cameras will be installed at key locations, especially highways, to discipline the motorists.
Using mobile phones while driving has been cited as one of the major causes of road accidents, according to several studies.
Saudi Arabia has one of the highest rates of road accidents in the world, with an average of 18 people losing their lives every day.
Saher camera monitoring has reduced the rate of accidents to some degree.
