Aurangabad Region get its first advanced speed gun camera

Aurangabad: In an attempt to curb accidents on Beed Bypass Road, the city police on Thursday installed advanced speed gun. This also turns out to be the first speed gun to be installed on any of the roads in the region.The order regarding entry of heavy vehicles on Beed Bypass Road, which was restricted except during the permitted hours, has been cancelled by the newly-appointed commissioner of police Yashasvi Yadav.The ban was imposed by former commissioner of police Amitesh Kumar, who has recently been transferred as joint commissioner of police (traffic) in Mumbai city.As a solution to the problem, Yadav ordered installation of advanced speed gun on the Beed Bypass Road with permissible speed limit of 40 km per hour. In addition to this, the city police chief has also ordered installation of breathalysers on the 10km long highway between Mahanubhav Ashram and Jhalta Phata that has remained in news for frequent fatal accidents.Giving information about the features of advanced speed gun, Yadav said, "The speed gun has the ability to fix target from a distance of 500 meter and can easily capture picture of the registration number plate from a distance of 150 metre.He added that in the face of manpower crunch, technology is the biggest force multiplier and can be used in bringing a serious check on any challenge before the force.Authorities maintained that the traffic police team deployed on the Beed Bypass would be trained in handling the speed gun. 

Assistant commissioner of police (traffic) Champalal Shevgun said, "The speed gun purchased by the city police is the latest version. Using this equipment, we can detect the speed of a vehicle from a distance of 3 km and can also capture vehicle moving at a speed of up to 320 km/hr."City traffic inspector Avinash Aghav said the speed gun captures vehicle's photograph sizing 4X6, along with date and time — a feature that would stand as considerable piece of evidence in the court of law.The officer said that in clear daylight, this equipment can also be used for capturing pictures from a distance of 200 metre. "Signboards have been put up at different place along the Beed Bypass, warning drivers about the permissible speed limit and also about the speed gun ahead," he added..
