Drink-driving and over-speeding of vehicles are the major causes of injuries and deaths on the road globally and South Africa (SA) is not an exception. Different systems which are currently used in detecting high alcohol concentration in drivers’ breath and detecting vehicles that exceeds stipulated speed limit are not effective, efficient and poses health risks to traffic personnel. In an attempt to provide effective solutions to these challenges, this paper proposed a smart transportation system for real-time detection of drink-driving and over-speeding on the roads using technology of vehicular networks. The objective is to allow for early intervention by traffic personnel aim at saving lives before actual accident occurred. We designed a theoretical framework of the system and implemented an application prototype which is web-based for use by traffic personnel to monitor the detection of traffic offenders in the capacity of drink-driving and over-speeding. We presented and discussed the operation of the system as well as the functionalities it offers. Additionally, we utilized the application to simulate the actual system and based on its working, we found that the system is feasible and can accomplish the tasks of road safety more effective than the existing approaches.[...] Read more.
