One such camera is already functional at the Sector 57 intersection. More will be set up at the intersections in sectors 25 and 31, officials said.
Superintendent of police (traffic), Anil Kumar Jha, said, “Traffic police have been strictly directed to keep a check on violations. The exercise is aimed at streamlining traffic on city roads. The data will help us recognise the nature of violations, so necessary steps can be taken.”
According to police data, about 400 people die in road accidents every year in the district, and 700 suffer injuries.
