600 Traffic Cameras Monitor Tehran Streets 600 Traffic Cameras Monitor Tehran Streets

Development of smart traffic control system has been rapidly underway in Tehran in recent years with the number of monitoring cameras as a major index. There are 600 such cameras monitoring Tehran streets now and many important traffic junctions are closely watched by such cameras.

Tehran SAMA quoted Homayoun Fattahi, director of Tehran Traffic Control Center as saying that there were about 120 cameras monitoring Tehran streets up to five years ago, but their number has reached 600 now. Management of traffic takes place round the clock at Tehran Traffic Control Center using information obtained through monitoring cameras which are used to analyze traffic data.

Fattahi said when an accident happens relief teams are rapidly dispatched to prevent traffic jams. “We are also able to provide instantaneous information on traffic to citizens,” he said.
