Chamba, November 24
A proposal for setting up an ‘Intelligent Traffic Management System’ is being prepared to organise traffic in Chamba more effectively. The proposal will soon be sent to the state government for approval.
Presiding over a district-level meeting on Tuesday, Deputy Commissioner DC Rana said the intelligent traffic management system was being established to improve the traffic control system of the town.
This system would strengthen surveillance, for which a command and control centre was also being set up, he added.
During the meeting, Regional Transport Officer Onkar Singh said 7,044 challans were issued by the Transport Department from January 2018 to October 2021, in which fine of about Rs 1.5 crore was collected.
During the same period, as many as 2,90,149 challans were issued by the Police Department and an amount of over Rs 5.68 crore was deposited in the government treasury as fine.
While issuing instructions to the officials of Public Works Department and National Highway Authority, the DC said rash driving and over-speeding of vehicles should be closely monitored.
