Machine learning for rowdy roadies: Cops and tech to rein in traffic offenders – Bangalore Mirror

Repeat offenders will be put through a simulation ride and will not be let off until they complete it without violations. Calling your influential friends is not an option. So beware

Heard that Eagles classic song that goes, You can check out any time you like but you can never leave? Well that is what is going to happen to habitual traffic offenders at this new Traffic training School.

Tired of imposing fines on people who repeatedly jump signals, drive on pavements and commit many traffic offences despite being penalised, the Bangalore Traffic Police (BTP) has started this pilot project.

Habitual offenders think it is okay to commit such offences. This needs to be corrected

M Narayan, DCP Traffic East Division

The East Division Traffic police have started this initiative as a pilot project along with Honda at the Traffic Training and Road Safety Institute in Thanisandra. Policemen are looking out for people who have committed the same kind of traffic offences five times or more.

We are working with habitual offenders. In such offenders, committing a traffic offence has become a habit-forming behaviour, and they think that it is alright to commit such offences. This needs to be corrected, said M Narayan, DCP Traffic East Division.

.

This is similar to what happens when one applies for a driving license, Narayan said.This is a long term process and BTP will observe and track repeat offenders over a period of time to identify if they have changed their ways. We are also considering writing to the RTO to cancel driving licenses if the riders/drivers continue to commit violations repeatedly, Narayan added.
