Secretary of State for Transport Mohamed Najib Boulif handed Thursday, February 21, 280 mobile radars to the services of the Royal Gendarmerie and the National Security to control speed.
These new “latest generation” devices are able to flash motorists before and after the passage of vehicles, unlike current radars. “Made in USA”, they also have a new smart system that can take pictures and videos of offenders, their types of cars and license plates.

He also pointed out, during a conference held Monday, February 18, on the occasion of the national day of road safety, that the ministry has installed 140 fixed speed cameras since 2010. And to add that a road traffic portal has was put in place given the number of more and more serious contraventions.
These new fixed speed cameras can control the speed, the forbidden lanes, the crossings of the continuous line and the non-respect of the red light. A first, since until now motorists had never been flashed at traffic lights.
