Abstract—There are a very few methods deployed in developing countries to penalise traffic violators. The major problem faced is that by following these methods only a few defaulters get under the scanner. Most of them bribe their way out of the situation. Looking into the systems utilised in the developed countries, the authorities are able to book violators. But, a few of them manage to slip out and engage themselves in hot pursuits. This is where the state looses a huge value allocated for its development. A lot of time, effort and money is being put into these pursuits by the government and police in order to ensure the safety and security of the country and their respective people. We have designed a system to monitor and control traffic violations such as over speeding, jumping the signal and jumping the stop line. It is not possible to maintain proper records about these violations. We have also devised a method to bring any automobile to a halt at any given point of time. This is a simple and a hassle free method. It will also reduce the loss of personnel and damage to property. The violations are observed using IR transmitters and receivers. These will be compiled by a microcontroller installed in the automobile. When any of the given violations are done by the vehicle, the data will be transmitted to the nearest receiver station. By using the recorded data at the receiver, the defaulter can be easily identified and punished in accordance to the law. In this method the manual involvement is low, the accuracy and reliability is high.
