State transport commissioner B Kartikey Dhanji on Tuesday said the system of issuing automatic e-challan to traffic rule violators has been started by the Bihar Road Safety Council at the Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC). "The challans are issued on violation of the traffic rules and a message is sent on the registered mobile number of the vehicle owner," he said.
He added at least 487 violators have been issued e-challans since March 20, including 317 for traffic signal violations, 150 for wrong side driving and 20 for over-speeding.
Dhanji said issuance of e-challans from the ICCC is part of the Smart City project. "Soon, this system will become operational in other smart cities like Biharsharif, Muzaffarpur and Bhagalpur," Dhanji said while addressing mediapersons here.
"Challans are issued for common violations like jumping signals, over-speeding, wrong side driving, rogue driving, talking on mobile while driving, not wearing helmet by two-wheelers and seat belts by car drivers and riding a bike with two persons on the pillion. To stop these violations, red light violation detection system and ANPR cameras have been installed at 25 places. Speed violation detection system has been installed at 12 places and other cameras at 30 junctions of the city," he said.
He added traffic police personnel have been deputed for issuance of e-challan at the ICCC. "In case of traffic violation, the system immediately captures the location of the violator along with the vehicle number," he said.
