Lt. Colonel Mohammed Dhahi, Head of Traffic Control, Capital Police, said that an integrated plan for traffic had been devised which is based on studies and analyses of traffic accident indicators over the past three years (2007 to 2009).

The awareness campaign will focus on those hotspots, which had registered frequent violations by motorists during the past, Dhahi said.

“Consequently, the strategy will intensify traffic patrols on these spots on the internal and external roads,’’ he said.

The traffic control strategy, he said, would be carried out in four phases — each three months — throughout the year.

He disclosed that the strategy is focused on two basic parts, the first one will see traffic police deploy 15 civilian patrol vehicles. Itwill also include traffic policemen and observers who will be deployed through field campaigns on internal and external roads round-the-clock to book offenders.

The second part, he said, will concentrate on educating road users on traffic safety.
