In Moscow, the number of deaths in road accidents per 100,000 people decreased by 3 times
The photo and video recording system of the Center for Traffic Management (TsODD), installed in Moscow, made it possible to reduce the number of deaths in road accidents by 100,000 people by three times, while stealing cars became almost 14 times less. About this on Wednesday, May 17, told in the Telegram channel, the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin.
“In many ways, this is the merit of the photo and video recording system of the TsODD. It includes 3,800 complexes: stationary, mobile and mobile cameras. Their installation helps to reduce the number of accidents, traffic violations, the number of thefts and, of course, save people’s lives,” the mayor noted.
According to him, Moscow ranks first in Russia in terms of road safety. The cameras operate continuously and recognize over 70 million vehicle passages daily. First of all, they are installed in emergency places.
The photo-video fixation system began to work in 2012. Since 2015, the complexes have been installed at 531 road traffic concentration points. And since 2018, neural networks have been included in the system that process all images with signs of violations. The final decision on the fine is still made by specialists.
Earlier it was reported that in 2022 the number of deaths in traffic accidents on the roads of Moscow decreased by 16.2%. And the number of accidents themselves, following the results of the past year, decreased by 9.8%.
