Thiruvananthapuram: The Artificial Intelligence (AI) cameras installed by the Kerala government in association with KELTRON will commence functioning from Monday onwards.

The traffic violators will be fined heavily from June 5.

While the state Motor Vehicle Department has installed the cameras in association with KELTRON sometime ago, it will start full-fledged functioning from Monday.

The fine will be collected using the Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) of the Central Road Transport Ministry.

Meanwhile, the Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said that there would not be any exception to two-wheeler drivers with children. The Kerala government had announced that two-wheeler riders with children below 12 years will not be fined.

Exempted categories

Vehicles including VIP vehicles and ambulances would be exempted from the charges after checking.

KELTRON has already engaged 110 staff across the district-level control rooms. About 36 more staff are to be appointed in the next two days.
