#TrafficMitra

The mission is to make Indian roads safe for one and all and in a time frame not in decades but in 365 days.

रोज अख़बार की पहली खबर रोड पर एक्सीडेंट और उसमे घायल या मरे लोग।

संकरी सड़के, अनियंत्रित वाहन संख्या, बेलगाम अतिक्रमण, गलत रोड़ डि़जाईन, खटारा पुराने वाहन, ओवरलोडि़ंग और परिणाम - टायरों के नीचे रौंदी जाती ईसानी जिंदगी।

एक सुझाव : वर्तमान में सैकड़ो की संख्या में सड़क पर ऐसे लोग होते है, जिनके पास Smart Phones होते है, जिनमें Cameras है और GPS की मदद से किसी भी Image को खीचें जाने का समय, स्थान व अन्य details उपलब्ध होते है।

ऐसे लोग तकरीबन हर स्थान पर ‘‘ट्रैफिक मित्र‘‘ बनकर यातायात नियमों के उल्लंघन का फ़ोटो खिंच कर record बना सकते है। इन images को upload कर वे यातायात विभाग द्वारा बनाये गए "ट्रैफिक वार्डन" को भेजेगे। ट्रैफिक वार्डन कानून के उल्लघंन की पुष्टी कर जुर्माने की अनुशंसा करेगी जिसे शासन द्वारा मान्य organisation का सक्षम अधिकारी मान्य करेगा और जुर्माने का निर्धारण होगा।

सरकार से अपेक्षा है इस विचार को कानून सम्मत बनाने के लिए कार्यवाई करें। हमारा विश्वास है कि अच्छी सोच वाले मित्रो की मदद से यह एक जन-आन्दोलन का रूप ले लेगा और हजारो ट्रैफिक-मित्र सड़को पर रौंदी जाने वाली जिन्दगी को बचाने में सफल होगें।

Few Thoughts on Traffic Mitra

Indian roads are marred with unprecedented chaos and driving quagmire, which is going from very bad to very worse.It is beyond the capacity of few thousand traffic policemen to correct it.The social and financial cost of each accident to the nation as a whole is immense and if calculated would be beyond comprehension. We would not tolerate this status for even one day more and work to correct it in a time frame unprecedented & unheard of ever in the history of mankind

With GPRS tagging of photo feature, date time & place will establish the authenticity of the violation.

Geolocated Images

With GPS tagging / EXIF Data of images uploaded, date time & place will establish the authenticity of the violation.

Socially Integrated #TrafficMitra

All photo’s will be sent digitally by email, whatsapp etc to a central server from where it will be digitally forwarded to traffic wardens who are retired police, traffic, military or any retired government personal who will authenticate the violation and forward digitally to traffic office wing which will send the traffic challan to the violator by post.

Uploader's Privacy would be maintained as required by them

Uploader's Selectable Privacy Settings

Since the recorder of violation & the violator are not interacting so no chance of any conflict between them, so this job can be done by any vigilant citizen. Uploaders can choose wheather their details are visible to public ( for eg. Traffic Cops, Traffic Cams, News Reporters)

Report Vehicles with no Conspicuity (Night Glow) Stickers

Vehicle Conspicuity (Night Glow) Stickers

It is mandatory for all trucks, dumpers, tractor trolly’s, buses etc to have night glow stickers on their back. By clicking photo’s of the violation any traffic mitra anywhere be it city, town, village or dirt road, state highway or national highway can help society at large. We all are aware of deaths due to this simple violation.

Report Heavy Vehicles in No-Entry Zones

Heavy Vehicles in No-Entry Zones

Similarly violation during no entry time by heavy trucks are a major reason for deaths on road. This can again be very effectively checked by traffic mitra. A photo clicked with GPRS tag is 100% proof & no one can challenge its authenticity.

Report Vehicles using unauthorized red/yellow lights

Unauthorised Red/Yellow Lights

Vehicles using unauthorized red/yellow lights can also be similarly fined. This will help curb VIP nature prevalent in our society.

 Rapid Response would ensure Quickly raised penalties, which have 10 fold deterrence effect.

Rapid Response

Traffic wardens will be sent photo’s of violation randomly for their verification with a limited clearance period of 2 hours after which it will automatically be forwarded to another warden & hence forth. This will ensure almost online like clearance time period. Quickly raised penalties have 10 fold deterrence effect.

Use our App to upload Video Files

You can send Video Files too

Any vehicle with a Go-pro or a Smart Phone with a Smarter Passenger, on any indian road is like a traffic warden on the road. All speed violations, lane changing, dangerous driving can be recorded by the traffic mitras and fines imposed.

Protuding Load

After successful implementation, 100 new “Body Worn Cameras” have been acquired by the Hyderabad Traffic Police to monitor the Traffic Enforcement system

Traffic Cops can use this

Even traffic cops can use this application by taking photo/video and upload violations for raising penalties later thus avoiding traffic jams during checking and would thus have more time for detection of violations.

PPPP Model

Although government is installing traffic camera’s, but at present their coverage is very low. Ensuring Safe Roads India requires much more. Let us join hands in "Digital India" campaign by becoming TrafficMitra.

Many violations like no-entry, improper number plate, heavy vehicle without back night glow stickers etc are non-technical in nature the challans for these violations can be raised by hiring private parties, reducing the burden on traffic department.
