The new signal system provides drivers sufficient time for a safe stop, said the General Directorate of Traffic. Red light violations have significantly declined in the Kingdom owing to the newly introduced green and red light systems.
The signal flashes the green lights thrice before switching on to yellow and red lights at intersections. The Traffic Directorate along with the Ministry of Works works in coordination to ensure road safety measures for residents.
The traffic signals with the new system have been expanded to several other areas of intersection in the Kingdom.
