GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Police forces in the Gaza Strip began using speed radars on Monday to monitor driving offenses, an official said.
Khalil al-Zayan, spokesman for Gaza's ministry of transportation, told Ma'an that the measure aims to reduce speeding on the main coastal road and Saladin street, where the majority of traffic accidents take place.
Anyone caught breaking the speed limit of 80 kph will be fined 50 shekels ($14), al-Zayan said.
