The Road Transport and Highways Ministry has issued notification related to rules for Electronic Monitoring and Enforcement of Road Safety. The rules specify the detailed provisions for placement of electronic enforcement devices including speed camera, closed-circuit television camera, speed gun, body wearable camera, dashboard camera and Automatic Number Plate Recognition.
The State Governments will ensure that electronic enforcement devices are placed at high-risk and high-density corridors on National Highways and State Highways, and at critical junctions at least in major cities with more than one million population and also including the 132 cities.
The electronic enforcement device will be placed in such a manner so as not to cause any obstruction, line-of-sight issues or interruption in traffic flow. The rules say that footage from an electronic enforcement device having an electronic stamp for location, date and time, can be used to issue challan. Challan will be issued for offences including not driving within the prescribed speed limit, stopping or parking vehicle at an unauthorised location, not undertaking Safety measures for drivers and pillion riders, jumping a red light and violating a stop sign.
