5,494 more CCTVs at signals coming soon

The traffic police are set to instal Bullet and Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras at 5,494 locations in Bengaluru. This will be in addition to the 731 cameras already installed in the central business district (CBD) and other sensitive areas of the city. 

The traffic police use 170 surveillance cameras installed at important junctions to monitor traffic violations and regulate vehicular movement. This apart, 10 prominent junctions have got Red Light Violation Detectors (RLVD) cameras that can record violations without human interface. For example, if a motorist jumps signal, the camera zooms and captures the registration number of the vehicle. The offence is recorded and the details are sent to the traffic police’s server. A challan is later sent to the offender’s address. 

The traffic police are also planning to conduct a workshop for number plate mechanics and sticker vendors, educating them about the font size for the registration number and the shape of number plates in accordance with the Indian Motor Vehicle Act. That’s because custom-made small number plates are not being captured by RLVD cameras. “If number plate mechanics or sticker vendors do not obey us, we will prosecute them along with the offenders,” Harishekaran said.
