More speed sensors on Kuwait highways, #kuwait #q8

The newly-installed speed-sensor cameras on the First Ring Road are operational, and all the new cameras across Kuwait will be operational as soon as all the cameras are installed, local daily Kuwait times reported quoting Colonel Adel Al-Hashash, Director of PR and Media at the Ministry of Interior.

“Currently, the only camera with a capability to measure point-to-point speed is the one on the First Ring Road. It was the first to be installed as a test case to study its efficiency,” Kuwait Times reported quoting him as saying.

The Ministry of Interior earlier announced that the new smart cameras will check the practice adopted by speeding drivers who had learnt how to fool the cameras by decreasing their speed when passing in front of the camera and then accelerating again. Since most drivers knew in advance the location of the cameras, these had lost all purpose.

With the new system, one camera will scan the passing cars at a certain point while another installed some distance away will scan the traffic once again. Since a car following a speed limit must take a minimum time to cover the distance, any vehicle caught outside this time zone would obviously be considered guilty of having crossed the speed limit at some point over the stretch, and will be liable for penal action. A number of new speed-sensing cameras have come up along various roads and highways to help check over-speeding, but unlike the earlier cameras that measured speed at one given point, the new gizmos are equipped to calculate the average speed of the vehicle between two given points. Since cameras are placed quite close to each other, the vehicle’s speed between the two points can be measured, daily reported.

The new speed cameras will be installed along all the highways and main roads across all governorates, daily added.
