The Jakarta Police have installed more CCTV cameras used in the electronic traffic law enforcement (ETLE) system that are said to have more advanced features.

The additional cameras will start operating this Monday on footbridges located near the Senayan traffic circle, Jakarta Police headquarters in Semanggi, the Tourism Ministry, the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry and Plaza Gajah Mada, as well as the elevated road near Sudirman Station and BNI City station, the Arjuna Wiwaha statue traffic circle, Sarinah-Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) intersection and the Sarinah-Starbucks intersection.

According to Jakarta Police traffic law enforcement unit head Comr. Muhammad Nasir, the new cameras would be able to detect whether the driver is wearing a seatbelt or using a cell phone while driving and capture the image, tempo.co reported.

There are three kinds of devices used in the ETLE system, which has been applied since November last year, namely an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) camera, a checkpoint camera and speed radar. 

The ANPR camera can capture a vehicle's license plate number, synchronize it with data on a vehicle database and determine the violation the driver committed. 

The checkpoint camera can further elaborate on the kind of violation, such as if the driver violated the plate number rule, did not wear a safety belt or used a mobile phone while driving. 

The speed radar, meanwhile, is a sensor that is connected to the checkpoint camera to detect a vehicle's speed in real time. The sensor sends a notification when a vehicle exceeds the speed limit. (tru)
