Chandigarh has become the first city in North India to install Digital Automatic Speed Gun Cameras to make the roads safer for the residents by tightening the grip on rash drivers and to check over the speeding. The pilot project has been installed only at few places but is on plans to be installed on all major roads across the city.

These hi-tech speed gun cameras will keep a vigil on rash drivers and will also record the vehicle speed of the offenders.

The Automatic Speed Gun Cameras are equipped with digital displays for traffic management. An advanced camera is also installed with the digital display to beware motorists of over-speeding.

This technology will help the Chandigarh Police to issue challans to violators driving above the city speed limits.

The digital display will prompt a warning sign with a white light to warn the driver if the speed of his vehicle is above the permissible limit. As soon as the motorist breaks the law, a Challan with the image of overspeeding proof will be sent to the driver along.

The newly installed advanced cameras will come equipped with night vision technology as well. These cameras can easily capture images of the speeding vehicles in seconds. Images taken by these cameras will be sent to the concerned office and will act as a proof against the speed limit violator. The advanced cameras can easily click photos of the speeding vehicle even in dense fog as well as heavy rains.

Kolkata is the other city in India where such system has been installed.
