escaping saher detectionSocial media users in the kingdom have been widely sharing a video clip that shows a new way to escape detection from Saher cameras, Saudi Arabia’s automated traffic control and management system.

With the new invention, a driver can conceal the license plate of his vehicle from within his car using a remote control, reported Sabq news.  This way, the license number of violating vehicle cannot be identified by the automated traffic control system.

The video shows a black panel sliding over the license plate of a car. The video clip posted on 22 November has already gathered over 170,000 hits. Many comments posted on social networking sites suggest that this Saher-dodging method is practiced extensively on Saudi highways where Saher cameras are in plenty.
