Based on the success of this pilot project, sensors will be installed all over Bengaluru; traffic police might use the data to send challans as well. So better control that right foot.

 


Life in the fast lane on the airport road flyover just got a little slower. From Hebbal to be specific. In a bid to prevent accidents due to over speeding, the Bengaluru Traffic Police has installed Radar Speed Signboards (RSS) that will display the speed of vehicles, so that motorists can slow down and stay within speed limits. As a first instalment, RSS have been installed on either sides of the Hebbal-Yelahanka flyover stretch. Police say that the maximum permissible speed on this flyover stretch is 80 kmph for cars, though most of vehicles are found to be exceeding the speed limit.

 

Additional Commissioner of Police (traffic and security), said that the RSS have been installed on the Airport Road to begin with but will soon be set up at 50 junctions in the city including Bhadrappa layout, Tumkur road, NICE road stretches, Old Airport road and so on. Sensors which have been installed on the highway can track the approaching vehicle’s speed from 50 metres. Currently, only the speed of vehicles in the extreme right lane will be calculated by the RSS.
