South Africa: RTMC deploy drones “to identify road hazards”

| |

It was revealed at this week’s launch of South Africa’s 2021 “Easter Road Safety” campaign, that the country’s Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) is investing in drone technology to help identify “road hazards”.

South Africa’s Department of Transport explained that deploying drones will assist in identifying hazards on roads, as well as motorists who are driving recklessly and at unacceptable high speeds. The craft, which can travel for as far as 10km, are to zoom in and track vehicles on the road, according to the department.
