Remember COPS have blackberry, next time they stop U for any violation, the moment ur car details is entered, they willl get to know that u have not paid previous fine.. for whatever reasons.

My Doubts :

What if the offender has changed his residence after getting the vehicle, the penalty challan will reach his old address so what's the use of implementing these rules..
(As many of them stay in rented house,and they change houses for some or the other reasons) ?

The notice is been sent to the offender's house what action will be taken if he fails to pay ???

If thats true,then the system would work well.I doubt if the updated info would be available so quickly. Eveything takes so long to be done,and computers have been around for a few years only.
Even if the camera captures images of a person breaking the law,by the time the cops figure it out and get to his house,he'd have packed off and gone into hiding.

I'd really hope that happens. Imagine,with all the fines they collect,they'd be able to implement so many useful methods/devices that would help improve traffic conditions..
ah.. dream on!

Default Camera Facts

Recently spoke to a traffic constable and asked about the new cameras. He confirmed that the cameras are connected to the signal switches and do not work at night when the signals are flashing orange continuously. He too was laughing at the thought cause most of the over speeding accidents happen at night, and the cameras do not work at that time.

Wonder how one can over speed in Bangalore with the choc- a- block traffic everywhere

Not all the RTOs in Bangalore are computerized. And as of now, the images are collected and sorted out manually. Given the number of offenders, this is a nightmare. I am sure once all RTOs are computerized and image collection and sorting are automated, we can see a huge improvement.

At the end of the day, such measures are meant to reduce offences, rather than increase revenues. I think that if these cameras help in reducing the number of 2/3 wheelers trying to beat signals by even 25%, then it is worth the effort.

Cheers,
Rajan

How many here agree with me when i say that these cameras will do no good when it comes to taming two-wheeler riders? The fonts on their licence plates are so damn tiny that, IMO it would be a rather difficult task to decipher the numbers.

No that wont happen the worse expected is one who jumps the signal should not directly hit the the pole where the camera is fixed..

Till now five out of ten RTO branches in bangalore are not computerized,
So the black berry's are of no use, it would just be a show piece..

Does anyone know the speed at which the camera is triggered?

In case of traffic light violations, I understand that when the signal turns red, the camera automatically arms itself to capture licence plates of errant vehicles.

But what about over-speeding? Is it the city-wide limit of 60km/hr or less?
