Maruti Suzuki, Delhi police have found a novel way to clamp down on traffic offenders

PW Bureau 

Around 100 high definition cameras will at the same time capture over-speeding violations, red light violations, along with the licence plate of the offender’s vehicle New Delhi: Given that the country loses over 1.5 lakh people every year to road accidents, Maruti Suzuki has joined hands with the Delhi Police to take up an initiative to raise awareness on the importance of traffic laws. They will put into action the national capital’s Red Light Violation Detection System (RLVDS) and Speed Violation Detection System (SVDS). The project will see Maruti Suzuki setting up the Traffic Safety Management System (TSMS) and maintaining it for two years, while the Delhi Police will be in charge of the commencement and running of the TSMS. The aim of the initiative is to remove human intervention from the current challan system and help reduce traffic violations.

Cameras to make it difficult for offenders

Around 100 high definition cameras will at the same time capture over-speeding violations, red light violations, stop line violations, along with the licence plate of the offender’s vehicle. The pictures will act as proof and sent directly to traffic offenders. The images captured will be sent to the Delhi police’s central control room to generate e-challans. At present, the system is being implemented on a 14 km-long stretch from Dhaula Kuan to Sarai Kale Khan in the national capital, covering 10 high-density traffic junctions. At the Todapur Command Centre at the Delhi Traffic Police Headquarters in Naraina, Delhi Police personnel will watch over the live feed. The new system is also capable of performing data-analytics and producing trend reports for monitoring system-effectiveness and efficiency. It is a round-the-clock operation that will especially benefit road users at night.
