Vitronic Middle East has announced the signing of contracts worth approximately €200m with long-term customers in the region.
In the next few months, the machine vision company will install more than 2,000 traffic enforcement systems in high-risk areas, with the aim of enhancing road safety.
“Witnessing firsthand how technology continually enhances our safety on our roads serves as the driving force behind our daily business operations,” said Youssef El Hansali, CEO, Vitronic Machine Vision Middle East.
According to the company, while the introduction of traffic management and enforcement systems in several countries showed a reduction of accidents and deaths on roads, they also 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,” Vitronic said in a statement.
“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 emphasise that without proper monitoring, there will be no behavioural change among drivers.
“Speed limits are important, but without enforcement, they are often useless.”
