According to reports, 284 cases of driving on the wrong side were registered daily. Even in social media, there have been an increase in number of complaints about the wrong side driving, which is one of the main reasons for the fatal accidents. Bengaluru police also booked commuters for defective number plates, driving while talking in cell phone, over speeding and other traffic violations.

Bengaluru police have escalated crackdowns against the violators in all possible ways. They are also using artificial intelligence technology to map the violators. The Bengaluru Traffic Police recently introduced an Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) in the city to detect traffic violations and issue challans to the violators.

The AI system will detect violations of the speed limit, such as jumping the signal, riding without a helmet, triple riding, and using mobile phones while driving. They are also using drones to detect traffic congestion and clear them for the smooth movement of vehicles.
