In an X post, Karnataka police wrote, “Our police cameras are working on Bangalore-Mysore highway. In just 15 days, 12192 traffic violations were caught on the Expressway. If there is an accident due to violation of traffic rules, your family has to suffer. Please think once.”

Karnataka additional director general of police (traffic and road safety) Alok Kumar shared a picture that was shot by the camera where a KSRTC driver was seein talking in a mobile phone. He wrote, “No violation can escape the hawk eyes of our powerful cameras on Bengaluru-Mysore Highway, whether it’s day or night. Please avoid use of mobile phones while driving @KSRTC_Journeys. Please take action against the errant driver for disregarding traffic rules.”

Earlier this month, 60 cameras were installed on the Bengaluru—Mysuru Expressway to detect vehicles overspeeding and causing accidents. These cameras will spot vehicles travelling at higher speeds than the permissible limits and automatically generate traffic challans.

Out of 60, 48 are ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) installed in six spots in each direction. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) also installed video cameras in three other spots. In July last year, the National Highway Authorities of India (NHAI) sent an expert committee to review and inspect the safety features on this road due to multiple accidents, ever since it was launched.
