Maruti Suzuki India and Delhi Police, together are working towards road safety of Delhi. They have launched the “Red Light Violation Detection and Speed Violation Detection System” in Delhi. The objective is to improve and ensure traffic discipline among citizens which should help bring down accidents and fatalities drastically. The system was launched by Lieutenant Governor of Delhi- Anil Baijal in the presence of RC Bhargava- Chairman, Maruti Suzuki and Kenichi Ayukawa- Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki.
An automated E Challan is generated with the help of the same system, and is expected to strengthen the rule enforcement and reinforce the safety of motorists. The system uses 3D radars and over 100 high-resolution cameras to select and follow those violators (both 2 wheelers and 4 wheelers) drivers . The challan will be sent to the owner of the registered vehicle via SMS, e-mail or post.
For a 14 km stretch Maruti has invested around ₹ 16 crores . The corridor is between Dhaula Kuan and Sarai Kale Khan
This is a first of its kind project in the National Capital Region and is aligned with Government’s focus to bring down accidents and fatalities in the country
