Chennai: The Chennai Police Department has launched a mobile app to track traffic policemen who are cheating on duty. It will be available soon. The traffic police has taken various measures to control traffic congestion and reduce accidents in Chennai.
Apart from this, fines are also imposed on motorists who violate road rules. Accordingly, when Arun was Additional Commissioner of Chennai Traffic Police, from March 2018 fines were collected from the violators through a digital ‘cashless transaction’ method.

This means that the traffic police will not directly collect the fine from the offending motorists. Motorists have to pay the fine at 5 places including bank, post office and court with the receipt. In the early days, fines were paid in this manner. But, over time, the number of non-payers increased as many offending motorists did not pay their fines.
To rectify this backlog, Chennai Police Commissioner Shankar Jiwal introduced the ‘Call Centres’ system on 11.04.2022. Accordingly, 12 call centers were set up and the traffic police alerted the traffic violators about pending fines. As a result, the number of fine payers increased from 21 to 47 percent. However, the 100 percent target was not met.

In the first phase, it will be introduced to traffic police working at 309 signals in Chennai and then gradually extended to all traffic police. The launch event for this will be held soon. Traffic police are currently being trained on how to use it.
According to Kapil Kumar C. Sarathkar, “The e-attendance register application is downloaded on the cell phones of the traffic police who are in the process of regulating vehicles at signals and they will be monitored as if they were in the control room.
