The general traffic administration is currently coordinating with a team for a unified traffic application in GCC countries, its director has said.
“The new system allows the exchange of information and data electronically between GCC countries on traffic violations, data related to vehicles, export certificates, discharge, and will connect all services of traffic administrations,” Maj. Gen. Abdul Rahman Al-Mugbil said.
He confirmed to local media that the department is in the process of implementing a two-part strategy. The first part concerns the violator that must be dealt with strictly and politely, and the other part is about providing services to citizens.
The new system will allow citizens to access all services electronically through the Ministry of Interior’s portal for all administrative procedures. It will allow citizens to take advantage of accessing the service smoothly during a short period of time.
“This is an extension of the strategy, which also focuses on fieldwork and tasks, and the transfer of some members from their administrative duties to the field to improve and develop traffic work,” he added.
Regarding occasionally faulty Saher system, Al-Mugbil said Saher is a mechanism to monitor driving offenses. “It has achieved positive results ... statistics and reports have shown that it has contributed to reducing the most serious causes of traffic accidents.”
