Ghaziabad. Drivers of traffic rule violations are being caught in the cameras installed on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway. According to the report submitted by NHAI to the Ghaziabad Traffic Police, about 35 drivers are breaking the traffic rules every hour. Most of these drivers are those who drive in the opposite direction. The traffic police will soon send challans to the vehicle owners.
The National Highway Authority of India has installed cameras at different places on the Delhi Meerut Expressway, which is connected to the control room. The employees keep an eye on the entire expressway sitting in the control room. Along with this, they also prepare the data of those who violate the traffic rules. About 20000 vehicles are moving daily on the expressway.
NHAI has recently handed over footage of traffic rules breakers on Delhi Meerut Expressway to Ghaziabad Traffic Police. According to the footage, 850 drivers are breaking the rules every day. That is, on an average there are 35 drivers every hour. Most of these include those driving in the opposite direction. About 30 drivers drive in the opposite direction every hour, due to which there is a possibility of accidents. Apart from this, the number of drivers with over speeding vehicles is also very high. There is a speed limit of 100 km on the expressway, but the drivers drive up to a speed of 150 km. This footage has been handed over to the traffic police.
Challan will reach the house of those who break traffic rules
SP Traffic Ramanand Kushwaha said that on the basis of the footage, the process of deducting challans of vehicles has been started. Challana will reach the homes of the drivers. Apart from this, policemen have been deployed on the expressway. These staff are challaning vehicles moving in the opposite direction.
cause to walk in the opposite direction
No loop has been made in the middle of the expressway of about 32 km from Dasna to Meerut. Because of this, if a driver accidentally climbs the expressway from Dasna, then he has only two options, first he should go 32 km to Meerut and then come back or return in the opposite direction to reach Dasna. Because of this, the drivers bring the car in the opposite direction.
20 accidents in six months
According to the police, there have been more than 20 major accidents on the expressway in six months. More than 26 people have lost their lives in these accidents. Most of the accidents have happened due to driving in the opposite direction and at high speed.
