Maruti Suzuki to Support Delhi Police Initiative for Traffic Safety Management

Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) today joined hands with the Delhi Police to implement a Traffic Safety Management System (TSMS) in the national capital. The TSMS will be set up along the Ring Road corridor from Dhaula Kuan to Sarai Kale Khan a stretch of around 14-km.

A Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) was signed today between Delhi Police and Maruti Suzuki India Limited. The TSMS project, the first of its kind in the Capital, is in line with the Union Government’s focus to make roads safe and bring down accidents and fatalities.

The TSMS will feature advanced cameras including Red Light Violation Detection System (RLVDS), Speed Violation Detection System (SVDS) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. With these advanced camera systems it will be possible to simultaneously capture red-light violation as well as speed violation by a vehicle.

With this initiative, Maruti Suzuki will support efforts of Delhi Police to promote road safety by strengthening and bringing transparency in enforcement of traffic regulations and create a culture of compliance.

MSIL will set up the Traffic Safety Management System and maintain it for two years. The commencement and operation of the TSMS will be under the charge of Delhi police.

Last year around 1,495 people lost their lives to road accidents in Delhi, among the highest in the country. With an automatic and objective system in place, it is expected to instil discipline among road users.

The project is likely to be operational in the next one year. In addition, Maruti Suzuki and Delhi Police also plan to engage with academic institutions and social groups to spread awareness on traffic enforcement systems and safe driving practices in the national capital.
