An advanced traffic enforcement technology vehicle equipped with a modern crash lab system to help investigate accidents and improve post-crash management through road audits was unveiled here on Thursday.
The vehicle called "Interceptor V8" has been developed and designed by the Institute of Road Traffic Education (IRTE) for practical use by police and traffic enforcement agencies in the country.
Equipped with the latest tools and gadgets for collecting evidence and measurements from the accident scene, the vehicle would support the police and other investigating authorities in determining the factual causes and consequences of road collisions.
IRTE President Rohit Baluja said the interceptor vehicle concept was initiated in 1995 when IRTE developed "Interceptor".
"Designed for practical use by police in capturing video-based moving violations including speeds of vehicles, the Interceptor is a comprehensive enforcement and education system," Baluja said.
He added the "Interceptor" helped police authorities in about 17 states in the country in prosecuting traffic violators on the basis of evidence and also worked as a deterrent for traffic violators apart from helping in road safety audits.
