The Delhi Police is planning to install a 3D radar-based Red Light Violation Detection Camera (RLVD) system at 24 junctions across the city to monitor people jumping the red light.
According to the officials, the estimated cost of the project is 20 crore and is likely to be completed by July this year.
With this project, automatic notices will be sent to traffic violators through SMS for effective prosecution.
The Delhi Police are also going to install gantry-mounted radar-based Over Speed Detection System at 100 locations on major roads this year, the officials said.
The project estimated to be of Rs 27 crore will likely be completed by July 2019, they said, adding it will help prevent road accidents caused by over-speeding.
In 2019, more speed checking cameras and speed guns would be acquired, the officials said.
Also, a new e-challan system will be implemented in collaboration with the National Informatics Centre to ensure transparent prosecution of violators, they said.
The system will help in building database of repeat offenders. It will also ensure online facility for officers to ascertain the previous history of traffic violators.
The 19-crore project will be completed by May this year, the officials added.
