The traffic police are coming up with multi-pronged plans to prevent road accidents in the city. They are going to set up 24-hour automatic speed guns for speed control. High-speed bikes and cars speeding on empty roads at night are causing accidents. These cameras can be used to stop such incidents. Preparations are underway to install these cameras at eight locations in the first phase. They will be gradually expanded across the city.
The speed of vehicles is being higher on wide roads like Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills, Secunderabad, Mehidipatnam, Chandrayangutta, Mettuguda, etc. Due to the heavy traffic during the day, the speed limit is reduced. At night, the speed limit for vehicles on wide roads is above the prescribed limit. The speed control is finalized for these cameras according to the recent speed limits set.
Roads with dividers and pedestrian crossings have a speed limit of 60 km/h for cars, 50 km / h for bikes, and 40 km for heavy vehicles. These cameras record the speed of the vehicles coming and going in the respective lanes. Existing speed guns are operating manually. Staff will have to keep an eye on the speed of oncoming vehicles carrying those devices on the roads. But these new cameras do not require staff and they operate 24 hours automatically. These cameras detect the speed of vehicles at night. The cameras take a photo of the fast-moving vehicle and send a message in a matter of seconds. This camera also alerts the Command and Control Center if you go too fast.
