New app developed to nab traffic offenders in state
Thiruvananthapuram: A new app has been developed by National Informatics Centre - ‘Total Digital Traffic Enforcement’, to nab the traffic offenderes in the state. The app will be in use by the mid of December. Traffic Police will capture the photos of the offenders using a mobile application.
The app created by NIC will be linked with the information collected by police and traffic police. If someone violates the law, it will be recorded in the app. The repetition of violation can also be identified using the app.
The app will be installed in the mobile phones of the police officers. They will be given separate User IDs and Passwords. Photos taken will be sent to the digital traffic control system with information including the place, date and time of the violation.
Later, the owner will be sent a penalty notice after the photo of the violation is examined. However, the police will continue with its present style of functioning for identifying those involved in drunk driving.
Cameras that would help in identifying number plates and other traffic violations will be installed at major places. These pictures will be sent to the control room and notice for penalty shall be sent to the offenders. An online system will be developed for the payment of penalties.
