Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government has started issuing e-challans to prevent accidents on the Lucknow-Agra expressway due to over-speeding. E-challans would be issued to vehicles completing the journey in less than three hours, The Indian Express reported.

The arrangements have been made at the expressway toll plaza—at Agra and Lucknow—to keep a track of the vehicle’s entry and exit times. Twenty-five challans were issued on the first day of implementation.

As per the data released by Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA), over 240 lives have been lost in more than 1900 accidents on the route since August 2017.

“We are starting this service on the two toll plazas. The modern equipment on these plazas will take photos and data, and e-challans would be issued with e-mails being sent to the offices of SP (Traffic) in Agra and Lucknow,” The Indian Express quoted UPEIDA Chief Executive Officer Awanish Awasthi.

The distance between the two toll plazas is 300 kilometres and the speed limit for cars is 100 km/hour. For heavy vehicles, the speed limit is 60 km/hour.

“The biggest problem we have is drivers falling asleep while driving. We are now dealing with over-speeding, soon we will take steps in that direction too,” Awasthi said.
