Traffic Police to Expand Monitoring Systems to Five More Roads
To expand the monitoring program that was launched last year, police will be using more advanced technologies in spotting traffic violations on five more roads namely Binhai, Binhe, Shenyan No. 2 Passage, Luosha and National Highway 107. There are six set of monitoring facilities that include 180 video monitoring systems, 37 plate recognition systems, 28 traffic LE information screens and 30 vehicle inspection systems.
Traffic police have also installed 10 sets of high definition cameras that can catch drivers committing traffic violations on the monitored roads that will enable drivers to see their violations on LED screens in 15 seconds when they are still in the vicinity. The deputy chief of the Shenzhen Traffic Science Research Institute Zeng Linggen said that based on the city’s traffic police bureau the increased monitoring is to further the effort in improving the safety and reducing local traffic.
Shenzhen have led the country in using advanced technologies in monitoring vehicle violations after they installed equipment on Beihuan Boulevard in August. Violations dropped around 90 percent since the installation of the monitoring system. Further plans to expand the monitoring progam to Longgang Boulevard, Meiguan Road, Nanping Expressway, Shuiguan Expressway and Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway before the year ends.
