Abu Dhabi roads will soon get radar systems aimed at preserving the environment by monitoring noise levels of vehicles and excessive use of horns.

The radar will automatically measure the intensity of noise produced by a passing vehicle. If the noise ratio is higher than the allowed limit, the radar will immediately take photos, scan the vehicle’s license plate and fine the violating drivers.

Major General Mohammed Khalfan Al Rumaithi, Commander-in-Chief of Abu Dhabi Police, examined in his office at the ADP General Headquarters, the vehicle-related traffic noise monitoring system.

This system, the first of its kind in the world, was invented by Captain Ahmed Abdullah Al Muhairi, Head of Traffic Safety Section at the Traffic Engineering and Safety Department of the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at the Abu Dhabi Police.

This breakthrough represents the significant attention dedicated by the Abu Dhabi Police to encourage outstanding staff members and provide a supportive environment conducive to creativity and innovation.

Major General Al Rumaithi received Brigadier Engineer Hussein Ahmed Al Harithi, Director General of Central Operations at Abu Dhabi Police, who briefed him about the added value of introducing the “new radar” as a part of the traffic safety system in Abu Dhabi. “Introducing this new device would make Abu Dhabi the first city in the world to use the latest systems aimed at preserving the environment and reducing noise pollution and noise levels caused by vehicles and excessive use of horns. It will also promote Abu Dhabi’s vision to achieve a sustainable traffic safety,” he said…. see more
