The intersection arrangements on Atatürk Boulevard and 100. Boulevard have been completed. Artificial intelligence system institutions are also finished at the intersections on Atatürk Boulevard. Currently, system installation, traffic signaling and speed corridors to prevent red light violations are continuing at the intersections on 100. Yıl Boulevard.

In the system we call adaptive intersection, safety comes first. Artificial intelligence will be activated simultaneously at all intersections, minimizing accidents by making traffic more fluid. While driving, the system will work even better as some habits of the drivers improve. We will eliminate parking near intersections and speed breakers outside schools. We're taking all roads under surveillance." gave the information.
