Over 3500 digital-challans over traffic rules violation have been issued in capital by Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) under Safe City Project with an aim to ensure a safe road environment for commuters, Senior Superintendent of Police (Traffic) Farrukh Rasheed said.

Talking to media, he said ITP is moving aggressively towards the vision of digital policing in Islamabad to ensure public convenience and raising our standards at international level, adding, now with digital challan system citizens can easily pay their challan through this electronic system with hassle free and discrimination.

The digital payment of e-challan would save the valuable time of the citizens and help ensure transparency, he added.

He said the E challan is being issued via a mobile phone app by the traffic warden. Then the traffic violator will receive his bill or fine via SMS at their door steps.

The E Challan system was now fully functional where ITP have collected around 3500 E-challan till date while the traffic warden preforming 200 challan per day across city, he said, adding, on highways for the violation of traffic speed we are issuing 12 to 14000 E challans per day.

SSP said special squads had also been constituted on major roads and avenues to take action against careless drivers.

He further said around 1905 CCTV cameras have been installed at different points in Islamabad to enhance the security of the federal capital under safe city project.

He said modern technology was introduced in policing affairs which is helpful for implementation on traffic laws and effective monitoring in the city.

SSP said it would be impossible for violators of traffic rules to escape from city safe cameras and this system is directly connected to Safe City as well as Excise and Taxation offices.
