Hyderabad: Traffic police to launch drive against free left blocking violators

Hyderabad Traffic Police are launching a drive against the violation of free left blocking and stop line crossing on city roads.

Hyderabad Joint Traffic Police Commissioner A V Ranganath along with other traffic officials went to Monappa Junction, Khairtabad VV Statue Junction, Telugu thalli Junction and Ambedkar Statue junction to review the commuting behavior of people.

It was noticed that commuters are blocking free left and crossing stop lines and causing severe inconvenience to their fellow commuters. It was decided to act strictly against violators. Engineer Cell of the Traffic wing has been instructed to coordinate with GHMC officials in laying stop lines and bollards to ensure free flow of traffic at free lefts.

Earlier in April, the Hyderabad Traffic Police conducted a trial run of the acoustic camera to identify vehicles that honk unnecessarily.

"The Acoustic Camera is produced by Acoem, a german company. It will be integrated with our automatic number plate reading (APNR) system very soon and will be modified to better suit the city's traffic flow." Ranganath said.

He said using its inbuilt sound sensors, the Acoustic Camera will localize the source from where unnecessary honking is originating- especially when there is traffic. "Once the source is identified, using the APNR system, we will identify the vehicle and issue challans for honking unnecessarily or continuously," he said.

The software used by the Acoustic Camera will look into the sound source and provide both acoustic and optical pictures. Using these images, the Hyderabad Traffic Police will ascertain whether the honking was done unnecessarily or not.

The acoustic camera will be installed in the city very soon.
