No speed violation of taxi drivers will go unnoticed: RTA
A new system monitoring the speed of taxi drivers has been implemented in the emirate of Dubai by the Road and Transport Authority (RTA). The system will report speed violations made by any taxi operating in Dubai.
AMAN system is designed to provide complete control over the speed of taxis, which amount to 8007 taxis distributed to five franchise companies linked to the system, in case drivers exceed the allowed speed limits in the Emirate”, said Adel Shakeri, Director of the Transportation System Department at RTA’s Public Transport Agency.
The application is an initiative of Dubai Taxi Cooperation (DTC) and will be applied by Dubai Taxi, Cars Taxi, Arabia Taxi, Metro Taxi, and National Taxi. The system detects any speed violation, also when made outside working hours.
AMAN system operates in a flexible escalation mechanism that grants only 60 seconds to the driver to reduce the speed to the allowable limit. In case the driver does not notice the grace period, the system gives an alert sound. In case of the driver’s non-response, a ticket is to be issued for violating the allowed speed limits by taxis.
In addition, AMAN system meticulously identifies the location where the speed violation occurs, and recognizes the periods of speed violation, using the GPS and the Pulse system.
AMAN system includes an effective monitoring mechanism for more than 18.000 drivers, which demonstrates the broad impact of the system and highlights the urgency to make use of such cutting-edge technologies in Dubai, one of the most attractive tourist and economic destinations in terms of activities, events and festivals around the globe.
