Mysuru: Those violating traffic rules in Mysuru district (rural) should be alert from July 1. On an average at least one or two people are losing lives every day, due to road traffic accidents in Mysuru district. In order to regulate traffic rule violations, reduce accidents and identify the vehicles responsible for accidents, Mysore district Police led by SP Seema Latkar are all set to implement Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) in Mysuru district. They have installed 50 ITMS cameras in 23 spots in all the police station limits of all taluks of Mysuru district. They have even set up ITMS center at Southern Range IGP and SP office premises in Mysuru with ten trained staff.

Henceforth based on the photograph of the number plates of vehicles involved in traffic rule violations captured by these ITMS cameras, violators would get SMS to their mobile numbers (linked to registration of their vehicles at RTO) and challans to their address through ITMS Center. They will mainly monitor traffic rule violations including triple riding; helmetless driving; driver/co-passenger traveling without seat belts; using mobile phone while driving.
