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:   

  • To ensure strict, accurate and constant implementation of traffic regulations.
  • To improve the level of traffic safety.
  • To upgrade the existing road network.
  • To enhance public security by using the latest automated surveillance and violation control systems.

 Technical Features of SAHER: 

  • Real time monitoring of traffic movement.
  • Administering the traffic efficiently and effectively.
  • Assisting in traffic accident prevention and responding immediately to traffic cases.
  • Utilizing mobile vehicles more effectively.
  • Live control of traffic accidents and cases.
  • Capturing violations via automated process and advising individuals of their violations quickly and in a short time.

Speed Control: 

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: 

  • The offending vehicle is automatically monitored by cameras.
  • A photo of the violating vehicle’s license plate (exceeding speed limits, ignoring red traffic signals, and other traffic violations) is forwarded.
  • The violation is received at the Violation Processing Center.
  • The violating car owner’s information is obtained from the National Information Center.
  • The violation ticket is issued and sent via messaging system (mobile).
  • Settlement of traffic tickets may be made by the Sadad Payment System through an ATM. 

Violators can be Notified by:

    Appreciate your effort..
    After trying it myself, I would like to point out some typos though..

    This is for STC users..

    To get the violations notifications:
    – Send ID no. only, not *56*ID no.
    – Send it to 88993 for STC, not 888993 or 888995

    Nice information and a dedicated blog..

    But, how long does it take to receive an SMS notification / update in MOI after the violation?

    Violation Processing Center of KSA works on fridays and Saturdays?

    It will be helpful if some one is giving these information also.
