E-traffic service soon
A new technology for e-traffic service-'Handled Pause Device'-will be introduced across the country soon.
This e-traffic service which is expected to be introduced in Dhaka city by January next, will replace the conventional traffic service to detect the accused cars and their owners, sources said.
This device designed and to be implemented by software firm Hypertag Solution Limited will provide many other services regarding traffic system.
The device will be able to detect the over-speeded cars, their owners and to fine them as well.
Hypertag Solution managing director Shafiul Alam told banglanews24.com that information about 90 pc cars of the country has been collected from Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA). The rest will be collected soon.
"In conventional system, traffic police in the country use a prescribed form to fine an accused car. In e-traffic service it will be digitised," he added.
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed among Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) and Sundarban Courier Service to fasten the delivery of papers from police to the car owners.
He further said that after implementing the service traffic police would provide a printed slip delivered from the device to the accused car owner. Then the car owners will pay the fine to a bank.
Besides, all information about a car will be available after putting the car's registration number and diver's license number in the device.
It will also provide information about car's registration number, chassis and engine numbers, route permit, tax tokens and other records.
Alam further said that after paying the fee, the car owners would get back their papers by Sundarban Courier Service. 'If it is delayed then they can see the position of their papers through internet,' he added.
According to him, the device will be used as an experiment in late December.
