Hit-and-Run cases

You might have noticed that hit and run cases have been increasing in Saudi Arabia. The major reason for the increase in hit-and-run cases is that the car driver does not have insurance to cover the damage caused to the other party.

With this measure, the traffic police expect that the number of hit-and-run cases would significantly reduce as there is no need to run if your insurance company is going to pay for damages.
