Jumped signal, hammered the roads at breakneck speed, weaved in and out of traffic and still managed to escape the policeman's clutches? Beware , you will without fail get a ticket home-delivered with graphic details of your escape.
Chennai: An integrated traffic management system (ITMS) to monitor traffic violations better and bring to book offenders will roll out in the city on Friday with the setting up of a control room.

The system, that will include closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, will be first installed on the 12km stretch from the Poes Garden junction on Dr Radhakrishnan Salai to the Secretariat on Kamarajar Salai which has at least 12 traffic signals.

City-based Purple Infotech Limited signed an agreement with the home department on Thursday to set up ITMS. Based on their calculations, the traffic police expect the collection of fines to go up from Rs 12 crore to at least Rs 60 crore a year under the new system.

The project, to be implemented at 100 signals in the city, was initially estimated to cost Rs 150 crore before being awarded for Rs 117 crore.

A senior police officer said, With the use of ITMS, more violators can be brought to book.

When the signal turns red, the camera will shoot the violator and inform the control room.

The computers there will generate an e-challan which will be sent to the violator by post or in person. Hence no Escape.
