Cameras detect over speeding in Delhi

As the new Motor Vehicle Act came into force from September 1, several states are implementing it to promote road safety.

Vehicle drivers are fined with hefty fines under this Act if they violate traffic rules including over speed, jumping red signal and driving the vehicle without a licence.

Many state governments are updating their road infrastructure to check traffic violations.

Speed limit violation is one of the most common offences in the traffic rule violations. In this context, 25 new cameras have been installed at 12 areas across Delhi to detect speed limit violations.

National Highway 24 and the route from ISBT to ITO have two cameras each. Two cameras are fitted near Pusa Road.

Another two are installed between Dhaula Kuan to Naraina. Three cameras are installed from Aruna Asaf Ali Road to JNU and Masoodpur.

Two cameras are installed on Nelson Mandela Road, just behind JNU, and another two have been installed on August Kranti Marg.

Not only the main roads of the city but the small lanes are also updated with new infrastructure.

Two cameras are installed in the route from Bhalswa to Wazirabad, while another four cameras are installed on GT Karnal Road.

DND Flyway that connects Delhi to Noida has also been installed with two cameras at various places to check the speed.

These cameras detect over-speeding and red light jumping. For this, some have been installed at strategic positions.

The places include Andrews Ganj Ring Road, Bhikaji Cama Place, Captain Gaur Marg Ring Road, Moti Bagh, Nauroji Nagar area, Mayapuri Chowk, Moolchand Ring road, Lajpat Nagar Ring Road, Sriniwaspuri Ring Road and Sarai Kale Khan Ring Road.

Maruti Udyog Limited has arranged these cameras as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project.
