Once the summer seasons begin, citizens will be able to check how jammed the border crossing Presevo and Gradina are in real time on the websites of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MUP) and the Automobile and Motorcycle Association of Serbia (AMSS), as cameras are to be installed by then according to announcements.

MUP announces that cameras have already been installed at the Batrovci border crossing, where the biggest jams occur, and the plan is for another three border crossings to get video-supervision by the beginning of the summer, among which are the borders with Macedonia and Bulgaria.

This will enable citizens to check how big the jams are on any given border crossing live on MUP and AMSS websites before setting out on a trip.

The cameras to be installed at border crossings, as Mirko Butulija, president of AMSS, adds, will facilitate traveling, as citizens will be able to see how long the rows are live. He reminds that drivers can already learn what the state on the roads and the border crossing is like through the AMSS website and the 1987 number.

Butulija announces that an app which will provide drivers with all the necessary info about the situation at border crossings will be made soon.

In 2016, a total of 64 million travelers passed through the 75 border crossings in Serbia, Rebic says, and the number increased by 6.5% last year.
