“To encourage public, to adhere to specified speed limits, we will be updating you regularly locations of mobile radars,” the tweet said.
Ministry of Interior had recently introduced mobile cameras on roads across Qatar, but locations were not declared in advance.
Earlier, many citizens and residents of Qatar had expressed their dissatisfaction with hidden speed radars on some roads and highways in the country.
“Clearly visible radars along with warning signs on the road is a better way to achieve the goal of maintaining safe flow of traffic,” one attorney told Qatar Tribune.
In the same context, a number of citizens also criticised the Traffic Department’s overuse of both hidden and mobile radars on roads.
They stressed that some drivers tend to brake suddenly when they see the moving radar. By doing so, they cause many car accidents.
