New Mobile Radars Added in Qatar

As of February 19, 2017, extra mobile radars are officially active on some roads and will keep increasing.

Qatar’s traffic police are increasing the number of mobile radars placed around the country. The extra radars are meant to make it more difficult to speed without getting caught.

The Ministry of Labour stated that it hopes the radars encourage people to follow the speed limits. Those who don’t abide by the limit and get caught by one of the radars will get a QR500 fine, in addition to QR100 for every 10 km/hr of speed to the maximum penalty of QR1000.

In 2016, motorists accumulated more than 1.6 million tickets for driving infractions. This number is actually a lower one than previous years.

The mobile radars are usually found in vehicles, parked at whichever location a police officer deems problematic. Therefore, unlike fixed radars, they are more difficult to spot and motorists can’t simply note where they are and slow down right beforehand.

However, the MOI has been tweeting the general locations of these mobile radars to give an idea to the public. They noted that areas such as Kharara Road, Al Shamal Highway, Al Wakrah-Mesaieed Highway, Dukhan Highway and Salwa Road are among the first locations to get mobile radars.

Checking Fines

If you’d like to verify if you’ve received a traffic fine, you can simply go to the MOI page here.

You will need one of the following: plate number, ID number or company ID number. You will also be able to pay the fines online.
