Speed detection cameras to catch over speeding on Tonk Road, challan to be home delivered
The speed detector cameras will trace the speed of the vehicles and if the speed limit is exceeded, the driver will be booked and penalized. The system is being implemented on Tonk Road after successful outcomes for JLN Marg
Jaipur: Traffic police in Jaipur is getting hi-tech to rein in on reckless driving and over speeding. The Automatic speed violation detection (ASVD) cameras have been installed near Nehru Garden at Tonk Road to trace speeding vehicles. The similar cameras had already been installed on JLN Marg. A strict action will be taken against drivers of over speeding vehicles.
This step has been taken to ensure road safety and to avert traffic mishaps.
Various cases of people driving recklessly and exceeding prescribed speed limit had come up after the speed detection cameras were installed at Jawahar Lal Nehru (JLN) Marg in Jaipur a few months ago.
The speed detector cameras will trace the speed of the vehicles and if the speed limit is exceeded, the driver will be booked and penalized.
The speed limit for two-wheel vehicles (bike) is 40 km per hour and for the four-wheel vehicles (car) is 60 Km per hour.
According to traffic police officials, the offenders will now get traffic challans delivered to their houses if they are caught exceeding the speed limit while driving. The speed detector camera will automatically trace the speed of the vehicle passing on the road and it will capture the photo of the registration plate and the driver. By tracing the registration number and the speed, at which a person was driving the automated machine will generate a challan. The automatically generated Challan with video graphic evidence will be used as evidence to penalize the offender for rash driving.
Some people get away with traffic offenses but the automated system will ensure that no one is spared and strict actions is taken against people caught on the speed detector cameras. The drivers will be booked under various sections of IPC if they were caught driving more than 100 km per hour, said officials.
