Saudi technology company Tahakom, and German ITS pioneers Vitronic have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to deliver enhanced road safety in Saudi Arabia, in a sustainable manner.
The agreement was formalised at Vitronic’s headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany. Executives from both companies engaged in discussions on future strategies for advancing traffic management.
The partnership underscores the critical importance of enforcement systems in improving road safety. Studies have consistently demonstrated that the implementation of such systems results in a significant reduction in accidents and fatalities.
By cracking down on traffic violations, enforcement systems not only save lives but also alleviate the burden on emergency medical services and law enforcement. Furthermore, the resultant smoother traffic flow reduces travel time, benefiting both individuals and the nation’s overall economy.
“Together with Tahakom, we have been able to increase the standard of living and will not stop before no more lives are lost on the road,” says Dr Youssef El Hansali, managing director of Vitronic KSA.
Hani Alsaigh, vice president of supply chain at Tahakom adds: “This project will be another enabling step not only to create more safety on the Kingdom’s roads but also to an integrated database. It will allow us to take the best decisions for an innovative and safe ecosystem in Saudi Arabia.”
