The Transport department will start integrating and updating the traffic signals with Red Light Violation Detection (RLVD) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems after chief secretary Radha Raturi approved the project on Monday. She also directed the department to make the traffic system hi-tech in all districts by installing drones, high-tech motorbikes, radar speed sign boards with cameras, digital speed sign boards, digital display boards and body-worn cameras. She also sought information from the department about the corrective measures taken as per the death audit of road accidents in the State. Raturi chaired the State Road Safety Fund Management Committee meeting at the Secretariat on Monday and gave her nod to the department’s project to improve traffic management across the State. She also directed them to implement the faceless challan system and ensure traffic monitoring through drones and ANPR cameras on border areas besides main roads. She said that the Transport department and Police must also work towards creating public awareness through social media for road safety and traffic awareness. The authorities must strictly enforce the rule of wearing helmets for pillion riders on two-wheelers and seat belts for all occupants in four-wheelers. She also instructed the Education department to make children aware of road safety in schools once a week to strengthen their knowledge from the beginning. Raturi also gave financial and in-principle approval to the Public Works Department for the installation of crash barriers, road delineators and cat eyes, parapet and cautionary sign boards and corrective works on black spots among others. She asked the departments concerned to work with the vision of making Uttarakhand a zero accident State. The director general of police Abhinav Kumar, Transport secretary Arvind Singh Hyanki and principal secretary Ramesh Kumar Sudhanshu were also present at the meeting.
