Ludhiana, July 31
After a long time, e-challaning for overspeeding violations is going to be a reality in the city.
The Ludhiana police initiated speed radar trials on Thursday. After capturing the speed of the vehicle, challans would be sent to the violators at their homes.
The owner would have to deposit the challan online in the stipulated period. The project is the brainchild of Deepak Pareek, Joint Commissioner of Police (City). He said several speed radars would be placed on the city roads to generate e-challans for speeding violations.
“For the initial trial, three speed radars have been procured and once the implementation is complete, several more would be put on various city roads in the days to come. This practice will bring transparency in the traffic police system and whosoever is caught driving rashly will have to pay the penalty,” Pareek stated.
After issuing e-challans, the same would be forwarded to the address of the vehicle owner. If the owner does not deposit the penalty on time, the challan would be sent to the court and non-bailable warrants could be issued against the violator for ignoring the e-challan, the JCP said.
He added that the purpose of e-challans was to put a full stop on overspeeding violations so that precious lives could be saved on city roads.
It is learnt that e-challaning would also minimise corruption in traffic police system because once an overspeeding vehicle is captured, challan has to be issued and no cop can delete that violation data.
