"All the roads will be monitored by a network of cameras around the clock that will record any violations," the statement noted.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has recently called for applying advanced technological systems to monitor roads to stem violations and improve road safety.

Egypt suffers a high rate of traffic accidents that kill thousands of people every year due to lack of highway monitoring systems, poor road maintenance and negligence of traffic rules.
