MOI Mulls Using App In Traffic Accident Investigations
Category: Kuwait Local News

The Interior Ministry’s Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major General Abdullah Al-Muhanna met MoI’s investigations director Major General Fahd Al-Doussari and top traffic officials to discuss using a new app called ‘Snap & Drive On’ to be used in investigating road-blocking minor traffic accidents that result in no injuries or fatalities.

= The new app, which is still being studied, will be introduced in collaboration of the Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI), the Ministry of Interior’s investigations and traffic departments and insurance companies.

= The application can be downloaded to mobile phones including a link to PACI and its databases and another with the traffic department.

= The project would be preceded by a 6-12 month publicity campaign to introduce the application before putting it into practice in three separate phases.

= The first phase will include a media campaign introducing the app as one that can be used to photograph minor accidents by either of the involved parties’ mobile phones from different angles, uploading the photos to have access to owner information through PACI and the Interior Ministry’s databases and then uploading to the site using the Google Earth app and simply drive off to check with the concerned police station, where the app is linked to investigators’ systems, to get a printout to take to insurance companies.

= Drivers will not have to go to the police stations in the second phase and would directly go to insurance companies, then wait for traffic court orders on the case. 

= In the third phase, the three parties (police stations, traffic department and insurance companies) will agree to directly compensate drivers without having to wait for court orders that usually take months and then have insurance companies claim the compensation sums from major ones after court orders are passed.
