The National Highway and Motorway Police (NHMP) is planning on using drones on all motorways and highways for traffic control and patrolling. According to the details, this step will reduce the dependency on human intervention and transition to a modern standard of operation.
According to the Ministry of Communications, the Motorway Police will use technologies like variable messaging signs, body-worn cameras, and intuitive automations that streamline processes for commuters. Furthermore, the public service management system, which is in place on M-2 and M-3, will be replicated on all motorways.
The motorway police will adopt a stricter regime to ensure proper law enforcement. “Drones will be deployed for enforcement, surveillance and mitigating fencing issues,” said the official from the Ministry of Communication. Moreover, the department will also launch a new black point system whereby motorists will begin accruing demerit points on their driving licenses for various violations.
