SMART IMPOUND SYSTEM FOR VEHICLES TO BE LAUNCHED SOON

A new smart device will be used to impound vehicles, involved in certain traffic offences, at the homes of their owners, Brigadier-General Mohamed Saad al-Kharji, Director-General of the General Directorate of Traffic, revealed.

The device, with a battery that can last up to six months, is connected to the General Directorate of Traffic with a tracking system which records any movement of the vehicle during the impounding.

Captain Riyadh Ahmed, head of Traffic Awareness Section, pointed out that the new “smart impounding” will work through sending an SMS to the violators to report the vehicle in question to the concerned department.
