The continuous growth of automobile traffic, and nonetheless the increase in the number and severity of road traffic accidents, and, of course, the number of victims lead to the need of improving approaches to the organization of control and monitoring of road infrastructure and transport and often – tighten requirements for road safety by introducing additional sanctions.
One of the most effective measures for reducing the number of violations on the roads is the use of automatic photo and video registration systems for traffic violations. This is confirmed by representatives of city administrations, where such devices operate. For example, the vice-mayor of Moscow, the head of the city department of transport and the development of road and transport infrastructure, Maxim Liksutov, said that the city authorities plan to install 500-700 new complexes in addition to the existing 1.4 thousand in 2018. According to the head of the transport department, about 75–80% of them will appear in the seats of accident rate to reduce the number of accidents. Another 15% of the cameras will be installed at the new dedicated lanes, as well as at uncontrolled areas of already operating dedicated lines. The remaining 5% will be used for detecting vehicles on the wanted list.
Modern complexes allow you to track the main types of violations with simultaneous recognition of license plates of violators. The information is transmitted to the Centres of automated registration of offences in the area of traffic. Inspectors of General Administration for Traffic Safety examined the obtained materials and confirm or deny the fact of the violation. In case of confirmation, the driver receives a “letter of happiness” with a penalty ticket.
Moreover, the fact of having such equipment on the roads has an important preventive effect, which ultimately leads to a decrease in the number of traffic violations. Realizing the inevitability of punishment, drivers become more disciplined, “master” the worldwide behavior driving culture.
For several years now, ISS has been successfully implementing photo and video registration systems for traffic violations by its native design. SecurOS Traffic Scanner in real-time mode provides the detection of offenses and automatic recognition of state license plates of vehicles passing in the control zone 24 hours a day and in all weather conditions.
