In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy ex­perts have lamented the ab­sence of a cen­tral data base for ve­hi­cles and driv­ers, de­scrib­ing the sit­u­a­tion as an im­ped­i­ment to the suc­cess­ful im­ple­men­ta­tion and en­force­ment of traf­fic laws in Nigeria.

The ex­perts who met with traf­fic man­agers at a sem­i­nar or­gan­ised by Data Sci­ences Nigeria Limited, in part­ner­ship with UK based Star­traq UK Limited and Tele-Traf­fic UK, in La­gos, noted that for the job of the traf­fic of­fi­cer to be made eas­ier, there was need to have adata base of cit­i­zens so that of­fend­ers can be eas­ily traced.

The sem­i­nar which was or­gan­ised as an aware­ness and en­gage­ment plat­form, also had the dis­play and demon­stra­tions of how cut­ting edge tech­nol­ogy that are used to tackle traf­fic in­frac­tions have helped traf­fic law en­force­ment in the United King­dom.
