The Peninsular reports:

People being allowed to click photographs of traffic violations and forwarding them to Metrash2 is seen by many as a practice that can be best avoided as it can cause misunderstandings, fights and heartburn among individuals.

It can also amount to breach of privacy of people and families. And such photographs can be manipulated through photoshop and misused, according to experts and members of the public.

Metrash2 is the Ministry of Interior’s smartphone application. Smartphone users having this application can send photos of violations directly to authorities.

Qatari psychologist, Dr Moza Al Malki, told this daily yesterday that she was surprised how authorities permitted such a practice since it amounted to spying.
