The number of speed cameras on the roads in Amman is set to increase, as the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) will be activating 15 of those - in addition to installing a new traffic light - on Sunday, 20 January.
This is part of an “electronic monitoring program” between GAM and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.
Mohammad al-Faouri, who is leading the monitoring program, said that GAM had initially tested 12 speed cameras, three road cameras and one traffic light on 8 November, 2018, to test their ability to reduce the number of speeding cars and drivers running red lights.
Faouri said that the speed cameras have been installed in the following areas:
- Sahab Sixtieth Street heading towards the Vegetables Central Market
