license plate recognizing smart cameras
Within the frames of the “Safe City, Safe Region, Safe Country” project of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, for efficient prevention of crime and ensuring road safety regulations, so-called “Smart Cameras” have been operating since November 1, 2017. The cameras automatically detect 5 most widely-spread administrative violations, namely:
- Running a red light
- Crossing double line
- Driving in the bus lane
- Driving in the opposite direction
- Exceeding the speed limit
Sectional Speed Control
Sectional speed control involves determining the average speed of a vehicle from one point to another. At present, 537 average speed control sections have been launched on the roads of international and domestic importance, on the basis of which 1948 km long road is controlled.
General Vision video Cameras
There are locations where a large amount and variety of administrative violations occur and capabilities of Smart Cameras cannot guarantee the maximum efficiency. In such areas, operators scrutinize and monitor General Vision Cameras to detect administrative violations.
Identifying Vehicles that have not Undergone mandatory Technical Inspection
Using a special system since 2019, Public Safety Command Center 112 can identify the vehicles that have not undergone mandatory technical inspection. The mentioned system automatically cross-references every plate number with the database of Service Agency of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia and identifies the violation. Failure to undergo the technical inspection will result in fine at the amount of 50 GEL for individuals and 200 GEL for legal entities.
