Explanation

The Greater Chennai Traffic Police (GCTP) has installed speed radars at important places to measure the speed of vehicles mentioning that a 40 kmph limit is to be maintained in the daytime and 50 kmph at night. Instant automatic challans are to be issued to motorists exceeding the mentioned speed limit. This is done with the help of speed radars that automatically capture a picture and issue challans.
