AUTOMATIC FIXATION OF TRAFFIC VIOLATION IN IVANO-FRANKIVSK
According to the Management of road safety the accidents level has increased almost by 9% in current year in Ukraine. The number of fatal accidents increased by 2,5%. This indicates that drivers are still negligent about their own safety on the road, even despite improvements in the quality of roads and other initiatives.
Recently, the Verkhovna Rada received a proposal to increase fines for driving under the alcohol. But before giving a ticket to the driver for drunk driving and any other violation, first he must be founded. Many people getting into an accident just take off. Therefore, on July 14, 2016 the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a law, which obliges to introduce automatic fixation of traffic violations. As yet this system has operated only in selected areas but due to the cooperation of the National Police and Benish GPS, it will be implemented on the streets of Ivano-Frankivsk.
The solution is based on the equipment for fixing, storing, processing video and registering the license plates. Online video fixation will allow monitoring the roads’ situation and storing video materials on the server. In case of an accident National Police officers will be able to reproduce the picture of the events. And because of the high resolution and quality of the video it will be possible to determine the license plate number of the car and other small details.
The project will be launched in October 2017 and be working in the test mode in Ivano-Frankivsk. In the case of success, the system will be introduced throughout the Ivano-Frankivsk region, and further even throughout Ukraine. The decision will increase the responsibility of drivers, reduce the number of accidents on Ukrainian roads and improve the level of safety of all traveler.
Benish GPS is a supplier and installer of the system. The company has previously implemented various projects with the state institutions: successful implementation of the systems for transport monitoring and dispatching in Kyiv, Odesa, Mykolaiv and Kharkiv. Now Benish GPS will provide a quality solution for traffic control in Ivano-Frankivsk based on video surveillance technologies that are innovative for Ukraine.
