Hyderabad: In order to improve traffic enforcement in the city, Hyderabad Traffic Police (HTP) has equipped itself with new generation devices.
Director General of Police V Dinesh Reddy, who inaugurated the integrated e-challan system and dedicated a slew of latest traffic devices to the department, said these equipment can effectively enforce traffic in the long run.
Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) C V Anand told reporters that they had received a lot of complaints with regard to the manual challans issued for various traffic violations.
"The introduction of the advanced traffic enforcement devices will ensure transparency and it is a step forward on getting equipped with latest technological equipment for traffic management," Anand said.
The HTP will be equipped with 150 hand-held advanced PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) devices, five laser speed guns, 10 tint meters for measuring visual light transmission of vehicles window-panes, 50 breathe analysers to curb drunken driving and 175 digital cameras, among other devices.
The e-challan system has several features to be introduced for the first time in the country. Advanced PDAs will be used in place of challan books, Anand said.
