Technology: Maharashtra Govt. uses drone to monitor Mumbai-Pune expresswayThis weekend, Maharashtra government fined 15 truck drivers after they were found cutting lanes by a drone operating on the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. Drones were used for the very first time to monitor traffic on the highway, where accidents have often proved fatal. Amol Tambe, Superintendent of Police (Highways), Pune Region, has confirmed the news. Aerial pictures of lane-cutting by 15 drivers was captured by the drone and all the drivers have been fined.
I welcome the use of technology to monitor the traffic violations, especially on this route. One of my very close friends had met with a horrible accident on this expressway in 2006 an he is living almost like a vegetable. I hail use of technology for such good purpose.
