Mumbai has the highest vehicles per km in the world. The city is facing traffic jams and resulting increase in air pollution and fuel loss throughout the day. The situation is worsened during peak morning and evening hours. During peak hours, it has been observed that cars occupy much of the road space and is occupied by a single person only whereas as public transport buses are overloaded but sped same as cars.It is necessary that individual car driving practice should be dis-incentivised for daily commuting purpose.

I propose to design a mechanism in which people travelling alone in cars are identified at the traffic signals with the help of moving cameras and chipped RFID in the car transfer the information to the RF device. This information is communicated to the central
database, which as per policy guidelines, will be charged or taxed for not pooling the car.

Please give opinion to make this feasible in relation to technology or similar projects elsewhere.
