Dubai: A new radar that can detect wanted vehicles has been installed on Shaikh Zayed Road.
Brigadier Mohammad Saif Al Zafein, Director of Dubai Police Traffic Department, inspected the radar on Dubai Police Academy Bridge, which can detect vehicles wanted for traffic or criminal offences.
The radar also traces the wanted vehicles and can detect the speed and the direction of the wanted vehicle, whether it was a stolen vehicle or wanted for accumulated fines.
Brigadier Al Zafein said the radar also can detect offences such as wrong overtaking, not using indicators and speeding. The radar is able to tolerate changing weather conditions and high temperatures.
He said the goal of installing radars is to deter offenders from committing offences and protect the lives of road users.
