More than 217,000 traffic violations were recorded by 42 cameras across the capital during the third quarter of 2018, an informed source has told Al Ghad newspaper.
August recorded the highest number of traffic violations at 89,181, which was a huge jump from the 54,000 violations recorded during the previous month.
The source stressed that the greater Amman Municipality (GAM), the body which has installed the cameras, is not a “debt collection agency,” but that they only fine drivers who have been caught breaking the law on camera.
Since the new cameras have been strategically installed in key areas around Amman, the number of road accidents has decreased by a mile.
The high-tech speed cameras will report you for exceeding the speed limit, crossing a red light, and driving in the wrong lane.
GAM is predicted to make JD 46 million from traffic fines by the end of this year.
