Police have activates the third phase of surveillance system at interchanges

Abu Dhabi Police have installed more cameras across the emirate to detect drivers who jump red lights.

The increase in camera installations is the third phase of the roll-out of the new system that detects drivers who jump red signals at an interchange.

Lt. Colonel Mohammed Al Shehi, director of Traffic Engineering and Road Safety, Directorate of Traffic and Patrols in Abu Dhabi, said the two previous phases have delivered positive results.

"From 2013 to 2016, incidents related to jumping red signals dropped by 64 percent and fatalities and serious injuries by 35 percent," he said.

"Violations also went down by 66 percent over the past three years."

The third phase will cover interchanges in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Dhafra region.
