In an effort to decrease accidents, the National Highway and Motorway Police (NHMP) has enhanced highway security. Inspector General (IG) NHMP Khalid Mahmood recently issued a public service message on the NHMP’s Twitter account to shed some light on the situation.
He cited WHO data to back up his argument that high-speed car accidents are to responsible for a substantial number of deaths and disasters. According to Mahmood at NHMP, the following actions will prevent further harm
A number of NHMP spotters will be stationed along the highway at various points. Offenders will receive a warning via a variable sign message (VSM) or will be informed of their transgressions by patrolling officers, who will then punish them appropriately utilising high-resolution cameras deployed by these spotters.
The NHMP will use VSM, which will be displayed on the back windshields of police cars. A Vehicle Speed Monitor (VSM) will reveal a rogue driver’s registration number (or other offence) and give them precise instructions on how to rectify the situation.
According to IG, some cars have already received their VSM displays, while others will be receiving them soon. All of the department’s patrol cars will be equipped with VSM technology.
