Dubai Police have launched a new radar to target drivers who avoid long queues by cutting in on other motorists.

The General Directorate of Traffic at Dubai Police announced the launch of the new device which will monitor violators who jump in on queues in the emirate.

The radar will be located at exits and intersections where drivers attempt to bypass long queues by cutting in closer to the exit or turn. It’s capable of catching a queue jumper from over 1,000 metres, according to Dubai Police.

The radar operated on a trial basis at Rabat Street earlier this month, and during the course of one week, it detected 3,000 drivers cutting the queues.

Well done.
This is really needed to ensure drivers respect to others.
Drivers jumping in the long queue think they are outsmarting others who are respecting rules.

To make this initiative really effective they should make the traffic stops based on this radar immediately after the junction that the offenders queue jumped. Make the offender wait by the side of the road for 30 minutes with a notice to other drivers alerting them that an offender has been inconvenienced.

Excellent. Now, if we can start to have people understand what those flashing indicators are for, and seat belts....
