Kathmandu traffic police book 20,000 rule breakers through CCTV monitoring

Kathmandu, November 15

The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division says it has effectively launched monitoring of vehicles plying on the road through CCTVs in Kathmandu Valley.

Traffic Police are keeping a close watch on the drivers through the CCTVs  to identify whether they are following the traffic rules or not.

A total of 20,024 drivers of various vehicles faced action based on CC camera monitoring in past two years.

The police have begun using this technology since 2016 and it has become effective so far, said SSP Basanta Panta of the Traffic Division.

Most of the cases were related to violation of the traffic lane and driving on the ‘one way’ road, he added.

The police are monitoring the traffic activities through 460 close circuit cameras installed at the Division Office, Ranipokhari.
