|The Middle East is seeing unprecedented growth not only in population but also number of vehicles - none more so than Dubai and the UAE. Increased traffic brings congestion on existing road infrastructure and at certain times of day can bring traffic to a steady halt.
e-plate can help by identifying in real time traffic flows throughout cities. Real time reporting allows Ministries of Planning to determine busiest time of day for traffic, and busiest roads by number of vehicles over a daily/weekly/monthly or annual period. Never before have governments been able to monitor and plan road infrastructure with such precision.
When governments decide to introduce tolling on major highways and in city centres to reduce traffic flows at certain times of day, there is no better system than e-plate. With an infrastructure of e-plate readers already in place, tolling can be introduced quickly and with minimal cost.
