E-challans were prior given by cops who monitored continuous traffic development. The new cameras will follow the wrongdoers all the more effectively.
The traffic police of the city will bring back the issuance of e-challans to drivers who avoid wearing safety belts, this time with further developed innovation. This framework was canceled in 2017 when numerous individuals got e-challans with no flaw of theirs, and the police accordingly quit sending these online reminders.
Tejas Patel, deputy commissioner of police, traffic, told the Times of India, “At that time, people were issued e-challans in cases where the CCTV camera footage could give clear evidence, but some memos were also issued on basis of assumptions. The CCTV cameras, in many cases, could not capture violations of the seatbelt rule. It was then decided not to send e-challans to car drivers for not wearing seatbelts.”
This is considering an occurrence where a man was given an e-challan worth Rs 1000, as the CCTV camera had neglected to recognize his white safety belt, which was really tied on.
