Dubai: All dedicated bus lanes in Dubai will soon be monitored by cameras to catch motorists misusing the reserved lane.
Dubai has seven kilometres of bus and taxi priority lanes spread across different parts of the city.
Last year, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) installed APNR or automatic number plate recognition cameras on one of the dedicated bus lanes on Naif road and the project is now being expanded to more dediated bus lanes in other parts of the city.
“We are in the process of installing the cameras on all bus lanes in Dubai. The cameras automatically detect the violating vehicles and post the fines directly to the traffic system,” said Mohammad Al Ali, Director of Planning and Business Development at RTA’s Public Transport Agency. More info
