In order to make the Delhi roads safer for commuters as well as to keep a check on traffic violations, the Delhi police is coming up with several ambitious projects including intelligent traffic management system (ITMS), over-speeding detection system and red light violation cameras, among others.

With ITMS system in place, the Delhi Police will soon be the first in the country to have it. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has approved the proposal sent by the Delhi Traffic Police. With the coming of the new system, the manual interface will be minimised. The project, with an estimated cost of around a Rs 1,000 crore, is aimed at giving an overhaul to the existing traffic system in Delhi and will be implemented in three phases. This will have features like CCTV cameras which will capture commuters and motorists breaking the laws and challans sent to home.

The Delhi police is going to install Gantry-Mounted Radar based Over Speed Detection System at 100 locations on major roads. The project will implement automatic issuance of notices to traffic violators through SMS for effective prosecution. It will also help control road accidents due to over-speeding. The project is expected to be completed by July 2019.

The upcoming year will also see installation of 3D Radar Based Red Light Violation Detection Camera (RLVD) System at 24 junctions to keep a check on the people jumping the red light.

In 2019, more speed checking cameras and acquisition of portable tripod mounted radar (Speed Guns) would be installed. And,the police will continue to hold road safety education campaigns in schools.

According to the police, one of the major reasons for traffic in the national capital is the increase in number of people owning vehicles as well as increasing population density. In view of this and to make roads safer for not just commuters but also the ordinary people, the Delhi traffic police issued 64,79,857 challan in 2018 compared to 62,87,486 in 2017. During the year 2018, traffic police earned Rs 105.99 crores through challans, an increase of around Rs 6 crore as compared to 2017.
