With the concept of Smart City, the concept of a Smart Traffic Management System comes up automatically. Traffic chaos has increased a lot nowadays. There are now more vehicles than there are men on road. Due to this boom in urbanization and the number of vehicles on road, the problem to keep a check on the riders has also become very difficult for the policemen. People take traffic safety measures for granted and do not take them seriously. As a result, a lot of accidents happen heavily due to not wearing helmet on motorcycles, and not following the safety measures prescribed by the traffic police department of the nation. To overcome this challenge, this solution will act as a helping hand for the policemen in controlling the traffic. The solution will detect the riders for the helmet, and help the policemen to get an actual glimpse of the helmet-wearing status in the city and better control the traffic accidents and enforce the traffic rules. If the rider is found to be not wearing a helmet then his or her number plate will be scanned and stored in the fine database, from where a fine will be generated based on the vehicle registration number that has been captured by the surveillance camera.
