Safety and comfort of road users is becoming a matter of grave concern. It is essential to build a safer and much more reliable system for traffic control and management, since the number of on road accidents has shoot up greatly with the increase in vehicle traffic [1, 10]. The objective of this project is to introduce a system which detects all kind of violations at a street intersection such as speed violation, stop line violation and lane violation during red light running and thereby we can trace each and every individual vehicle. Two rows of IR transmitters are used for detecting the violations. One is to warn the driver, whenever he crosses the first stop line during red signal, by switching on the alarm circuit which is fixed in the vehicle, and the alarm is a continuous one until he stops the vehicle. Second one is to transmit the details of the vehicle to the RTO office, if he cross the second stop line and it will ready to turn off the ignition whenever he tries to stop the vehicle. Once the vehicle is turned off, it will reset only through the Road Traffic Officer (RTO). The proposed system has two sections one is the receiver which is fixed in the vehicle and the second one is the transmitter which is fixed in the RTO office. Moreover, the details of the vehicle is monitored and transmitted to the RTO section and the details of the vehicle are displayed in the RTO section whenever the vehicle violates the traffic rule.
