A speed radar installed in a drone that flies over Dubai's roads is one of the options Dubai Police is considering to tighten the grip on speedsters in the emirate.
The drone has already been built, and is capable of carrying a speed radar if such measures are to be implemented, explains Maher bin Haidar, of the General Department of Protective Security and Emergency at Dubai Police.
Showing the latest and, according to him, the most advanced drones that the authority has in hand at the ongoing Gitex Technology week, he says, "This drone can capture images from a kilometre distance with its capacity to zoom in 60 times,” he explained.
“It can fly for two hours, and can be controlled at a distance of 2km with a remote control."
I have been seeing this new traffic fines radar at few places already and wondering what's new in this version of radar?
Just came across this insane video of explaining what this traffic radar is capable of and how it will soon change the traffic violations in Dubai in near future.
Comment from video: deployed all around Dubai now. So guy's be good and responsible driver now
Good move by Dubai authorities +100000000
