roads safe and bring down accidents and fatalities.
The TSMS will feature advanced
cameras including Red Light Violation Detection System (RLVDS), Speed Violation

capture red-light violation as well as speed violation by a vehicle.

lost their lives to road accidents in Delhi, among the highest in the country.
With an automatic and objective system in place, it is expected to instil
discipline among road users.
Maruti Suzuki will spend
nearly Rs 15 crore on this project. The project is likely to be operational in
the next one year. In addition, Maruti Suzuki and Delhi Police also plan to
engage with academic institutions and social groups to spread awareness on
traffic enforcement systems and safe driving practices in the national capital.
