Dubai’s roads will be equipped with hidden speed radars on July 15 to catch ‘arrogant’ drivers, reports Khaleej Times. Fifteen radars are currently being tested, said Brigadier Mohammed Saif Al Zafin, Director of General Department of Traffic.
“Motorists must oblige with the specified speed limit on Dubai’s internal roads and highways or they will be nabbed by gun radars which would help police catch the ‘arrogant’ drivers who don’t comply with the speed limits,” Al Zafin said.
“The gun radars will be available anywhere, either in police patrols, trees, near electricity poles at bridges or in the middle of the road.”
Drivers caught speeding will be fined up to AED2,000 and eight black points.
