Delhi Police has joined hands with car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL) to implement a Traffic Safety Management System (TSMS) in the national capital.
A memorandum of agreement (MoA) was signed between Delhi Police and Maruti Suzuki which will spend around ₹15Cr on this project. The project is likely to be operational in the next one year. In addition, Maruti Suzuki and Delhi Police also plan to engage with academic institutions and social groups to spread awareness on traffic enforcement systems and safe driving practices in the national capital.
Some of the objectives of the programme are to reduce accidents and fatalities, improve compliance of traffic rules, strengthen and bring transparency in enforcement by eChallan system, awareness on commuter safety and surveillance of traffic movement.
The TSMS will feature advanced cameras including Red Light Violation Detection System (RLVDS), Speed Violation Detection System (SVDS) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. With these advanced camera systems it will be possible to simultaneously capture red-light violation as well as speed violation by a vehicle.The projecy will be set up along the Ring Road corridor from Dhaula Kuan to Sarai Kale Khan a stretch of around 14-km in Delhi.
Maruti Suzuki will set up the Traffic Safety Management System and maintain it for two years. The commencement and operation of the TSMS will be under the charge of Delhi Police.
