CURBING THE SPREAD OF COVID-
The world is going through a very difficult time because of the spread of the coronavirus. In India, the state, as well as the central governments, has implemented many guidelines to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Recently, to help control the second wave of the covid-19, India was under complete lockdown. As the situation is finally under control, the governments have been slowly providing various relaxation to the public.
TRAFFIC IN CHENNAI-
Traffic in India had been under control during the times of the lockdown. The number of traffic violations has also decreased drastically as hardly people were seen outside their homes. But now, as relaxations are provided the number of traffic violations in India is also increasing India.
- To deal with the increasing traffic violations post lockdown, the Chennai traffic police department has installed five automated number plate recognition cameras in the Anna Nagar area.
- This has served as a great help to the traffic police in Anna Nagar to deal with the traffic violators.
INSTALLING AUTOMATED CAMERAS IN CHENNAI-
- The automated cameras were installed in Anna Nagar, Chennai on 1st July 2021.
- After installing the cameras, the automated plate recognition cameras have identified more than 10,000 violators in the Anna Nagar region of Chennai.
- This is the record of a single day after the installation.
- The CCTV cameras were installed in Chennai in 2019 but only served for surveillance purposes.
- They were not linked to the computers. But with the new technology, e-challans are generated and sent directly to the violator’s number.
WORKING ON THE NEW TECHNIQUE-
- The computers that are connected to these automated cameras generate challans online.
- The information is then sent to the traffic police department and they send the e-challans to the violators by an SMS.
