The Kingdom’s Traffic Safety Management System
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has witnessed the employment of a world-class technology to control and manage motor vehicle traffic with a highly developed system called (SAHER). The system has been incorporated in some cities and will soon be implemented in all major cities. We would like to alert you that the speed limits on some highways within the major cities and highways between cities have been changed and new speed limit signs have been installed.
The SAHER system is an automated traffic control and management system, which covers major cities in Saudi Arabia, and uses a digital camera network linked with the National Information Center of the Ministry of Interior.
The Goal of the SAHER System:
Technical Features of SAHER:
Speed is controlled by shooting clear pictures (photos) of the vehicles’ license plates while exceeding the speed limit in all tracks (lanes) at the same time. This system runs around the clock.
Monitoring the Vehicles Ignoring Red Traffic Signals:
A front camera captures a clear picture of the license plate and driver. The sensor detects the violation of ignoring the red traffic signal or pedestrian crossing. The rear camera captures the back plate of the vehicle and the traffic light status.
Circulation of Traffic Violation Ticket:
Violators can be Notified by:
Enter your national ID (Ahwal/Iqama) number, the verification code, and then press “send,” and the system will advise you if any citation is recorded against you.
The Vehicle Owner/User’s Information can be Updated Through:
The message should contain the ID number and expiration date of the driver license or the vehicle registration expiration date (Estmarah) – date in AH,
the ID number and (*) than DL or vehicle registration expiry date in AH (without spaces):
The National Information Center will check the authenticity of data sent. The telephone number will be registered and the sender will receive a confirmation message.
