Riyadh – Mubasher: The Saudi Ministry of Transport said a total of 58,410 kilometres of roads in the kingdom were covered by the vibration warning technology.

The kingdom is the first in the Middle East and one of the top five countries worldwide to use this technology for vehicles, according to a statement on Thursday.

This technology warns the driver through vibration if the vehicle is leaving its lane as a result of drowsiness, use of mobile, or vision changes due to weather conditions.
