    Karnataka Police to put "intelligent traffic system" on this expressway

    ANPRS, RLV, real-time speed cameras to monitor traffic rule violations

    Offenders will be promptly issued e-challans in real-time for their violations

The Karnataka Police are gearing up to establish an “intelligent traffic system” on the Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway by the end of this year.

This innovative traffic management system will encompass essential components such as the installation of an Automatic Number Plate Recognition System (ANPRS), Red Light Violation (RLV) cameras, and real-time speed monitoring devices, among other features.

In the event that a driver violates any traffic regulations or exceeds the speed limit in any specific section of the expressway, immediate action will be taken. Offenders will be promptly issued e-challans to address their violations.

This decision comes in response to a series of fatal accidents that occurred on the 118-kilometer-long Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway since its inauguration in March.

In May, there were 29 recorded road accident fatalities, but this number decreased to six in August thanks to the rigorous traffic management measures enforced by the police.

Having repeatedly urged the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to implement pedestrian-friendly traffic management solutions for the Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway, the Karnataka Police have taken matters into their own hands.

They plan to introduce the “intelligent traffic system” along the expressway by the end of the year, with Alok Kumar, the Additional Director General of Police responsible for traffic and road safety in Karnataka, confirming that a tender for this project will soon be published on the government e-marketplace (GeM) portal.
