Da Nang installs 9 additional street surveillance cameras to combat traffic violations

Police in Da Nang recently announced that they will begin fining traffic violators using footage captured by nine newly-installed surveillance cameras in the city.
The local People’s Committee has approved a police proposal to crack down on traffic violations using several newly installed surveillance cameras throughout the city, Lieutenant Colonel Phan Van Thuong, deputy chief of the traffic police bureau, announced on Wednesday.
Police officers are running public awareness campaigns to inform locals of the new policy, Lt. Col. Thuong added, noting that the campaigns will end on January 15, just one day before the new measure comes into effect on January 16.
The nine surveillance cameras are located at the Ong Ich Duong-CachMang Thang Tam; Ho Xuan Huong-Ngu Hanh Son-Le Van Hien; Ha Huy Tap-Dien Bien Phu; 2/9 and Tran Thi Ly Bridge; Ong Ich Khiem-Le Duan; Hung Vuong-Ong Ich Khiem; Hoang Dieu-Nguyen Van Linh; and Nguyen Van Linh-Tran Phu-2/9 intersections; as well as the Nga Ba Hue Flyover.
Footage from these cameras will be sent to a police processing center where it will be used as evidence to levy fines against drivers.
The surveillance devices are also meant to help police curb traffic jams and quickly clear accident scenes.
“They will assist in our mission to fight crime as well,” said Lt. Col. Thuong.
A system of surveillance cameras has also been installed along Cach Mang Thang Tam Street, aiding police in identifying over 1,700 vehicles violating traffic regulations.
