With the challenges road safety brings to countries, nations all over the Middle East have pushed the topic to the top of their agenda. A key component of every strategy remains to be traffic enforcement, which is an effective measure against the main causes of traffic fatalities. Studies show that traffic enforcement has been a game-changer in battling the main reasons for traffic-related deaths.
The introduction of enforcement systems in several countries showed a reduction of accidents and deaths on roads. This means that with the increasing number of controlling violations, people suffer less from injuries and deaths of relatives. And even for those not directly affected by accidents, this enforcement has an effect on them: They will spend less time on the road.
Traffic management and enforcement systems provide benefits that extend beyond the daily lives of individuals. These systems have positive effects on the country, ultimately enhancing the standard of living for its inhabitants. Road accidents have multiple implications for a country's GDP. By reducing the occurrence of accidents, significant savings can be achieved in terms of medical emergency care expenses and deployments of police and other professionals. However, it is crucial to emphasize that without proper monitoring, there will be no behavioral change among drivers. Speed limits are important, but without enforcement, they are often useless.
