Two drones on Mumbai-Pune Expressway to control accidents

The 95-km long Mumbai-Pune Expressway is one of the busiest highways all through the year. It also reports fatalities due to negligence of safety rules daily. Till October, this year, 58 people have lost their lives, and 124 cases of accidents have taken place. The cases of overspeeding and lane cutting were 1.2 lakh and 1.9 lakh, respectively. Officials often claim that the main cause of accidents is sudden lane cutting and illegal parking.

To prevent such cases, drones will help in alerting motorists if they break the rules. The announcements would be made in three languages- Hindi, English, and Marathi to ensure the safety of motorists. Also, more drones will be added later after the success of this initiative.
