The Public Works Authority, Ashghal, is implementing the ‘Intelligent Transportation System’ (ITS) as part of its strategy to promote traffic safety in Qatar. It will be partially applied in 2017 and completely installed in 2018. The new system will allow vehicles to send alerts during accidents, road works or breakdown. Also, it provides real-time information and panoramic view to guide drivers and update them on vacant parking areas. The system also aims to reduce traffic accidents by 80 percent.
