Bhubaneswar: Total nine traffic posts (junctions) in Bhubaneswar will be equipped in Traffic Violation Detection System or the TVDS. As of now, only Rupali Square has the TVDS.

With the TVDS in place, 36 traffic violations were detected by the Commissionerate of Police on Sunday (December 1). The CCTV cameras have also supplemented enforcement drives in the Capital City, DCP (Traffic), Sagarika Nath said.

"Total 59 traffic violations were detected with the help of CCTV cameras at traffic posts. All total 95 traffic violators will receive challans at their respective addresses," said Nath.

Addressing media persons here on Monday, Nath stressed and urged motorists to adhere to the speed limits within the city. "In Bhubaneswar the speed limit has been set to 50 kilometres per hour (KMPH) and on the National Highways (including flyovers), the speed limit is 70 KMPH."

This apart, speed limit markers have been erected near places like the hospitals and schools. The commuters are advised to stick to the speed limit specified on the markers at these places.

With the Amended MV Act in force, the Twin City police have intensified enforcement activities and speed limit has been a major deterrent to check unruly motorists.
