Islamabad Capital Territory Police (ICTP) has revised speed limits on various roads and highways in Islamabad. The department has advised the public to stay within the limits or be ready to receive a hefty e-challan at their doorstep.
ICTP has reduced the speed limit on Islamabad’s street and sectoral roads to 30 km/h for LTV and 25 km/h for HTV, especially near schools and hospitals. It will monitor the speed of all vehicles via Safe City Cameras and will send fines to the violators.
Intelligent Traffic Signals
A student at NUST has developed an automated traffic signal system that will operate solely on traffic observation, eliminating the potential for traffic congestion.
According to the details, the signals will be managed by a modern system and an app that will prevent traffic congestion on any road. Instead of remaining green or red for the allotted time, the signals will flash in accordance with traffic conditions.
In addition, the signals will favor emergency and security vehicles. It can recognize an ambulance, a fire truck, or any other special vehicle, prioritizing open passage for such vehicles.
Captain (Retired) Muhammad Usman, Chairman of the Capital Development Authority, has also expressed interest in the new signal technology and has invited the student to a meeting.
