In a move to identify traffic offenders by using minimal manpower, the UT Administration has cleared Chandigarh traffic police's proposal of the Red Light Violation Detection (RLVD) system. The proposal is aimed towards installation of 'sensors' that would automatically identify vehicles jumping red lights at signals.
The system also includes state-of-the-art CCTV cameras that would automatically click photographs of offending vehicles, while a traffic light control room would co-ordinate between the sensors and cameras during the process.
The Chandigarh traffic police will now float tenders to take help from traffic experts (private consultants) in identifying light points where the system would be required. A study would be conducted by a team of experts for installation of the RLVD system.
Tenders will also be floated for 'system integrators' to provide the hardware (cameras and sensors) required. Also, assistance of an expert panel will be taken to analyze the quality of hardware supplied.
"The UT Administration has cleared the RLVD proposal. We would be floating tenders soon and hope the plan would be completed by the end of next year," said Maneesh Chaudhry, SSP (Security and Traffic).
According to the plan, sensors will be placed beneath the Stop Line (a white strip painted about a foot before the Zebra Crossing).
Automated cameras would be placed at light points across the city. Both the sensors and cameras will be connected to the main control room at Traffic Lines in Sector 29.
When a vehicle will cross the Stop Line, the tyres will exert pressure on the sensors which, in turn, will send a signal to the control room. The control room would then send a signal to the CCTV camera to click photographs of the offending vehicle.
The camera would click multiple shots, of which one is expected to be a 'contextual' photograph, while another will be used to identify the registration number of the vehicle. The 'contextual' photograph will be a zoomed-out picture of the area around the traffic light. This is to ensure that no traffic offender, at the time of payment of challan, alleges the photograph was clicked without commitment of any offence.
