Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Motor Vehicle Department will be convening a high-level meeting ahead of their move to issue fines for traffic violations identified by AI-enabled cameras from June 5 onwards.

The meeting will be held on May 24 to discuss various, including signing an agreement with Keltron regarding an order issued by the government approving the Integrated Digital Traffic Enforcement System(ITES). The meeting will discuss matters including some conditions related to camera operation.

At present, MVD has been issuing notices (only intended to create awareness) against violations identified by AI-enabled cameras. However, from June 5 onwards, the department will send notices to collect fines.

The traffic violations detected by the camera will be handed over to the officials of the Motor Vehicle Department after conducting a preliminary investigation.

Meanwhile, the state has written a letter to the Union Government requesting relaxation over MVD rules that prohibit children from accompanying a pillion rider on two-wheelers. However, a favourable decision is unlikely.

Though it is still illegal to carry children beside a pillion rider, no fines are issued. However, AI cameras are designed to identify such traffic violations.
