YEREVAN, February 28. /ARKA/. Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan instructed today Armenian Deputy Police Chief Arthur Osikyan to conduct a campaign for explaining drivers how street surveillance cameras and radars work.
“After installation of surveillance cameras and radars on roads drivers had repeatedly said they were on wrong places,” he said adding that drivers are also unhappy about the speed limit set for certain road sections. In addition, drivers find fines too high.
Sargsyan also called the road police to pay their attention to the fact that drivers exceed the set speed limit immediately after passing the road sections under surveillance.
Arthur Osikyan, in response, said the installation of these devises on particular places was prompted by high degree of risks on these very sections.
“Thanks to installation of these devises in Yerevan in 2012, the rate of fatal traffic accidents dropped 30%, while since 2008 it has grown 30% every year,” he said. -0-
