Hel­met for cars

Business Standard - - ISSUES AND INSIGHTS -

To make the flow of traf­fic easy and has­sle-free, the Mad­hya Pradesh city po­lice have in­tro­duced a hitech e-chal­lan sys­tem. Un­der this sys­tem, the traf­fic po­lice depart­ment has in­stalled cam­eras at prom­i­nent junc­tions in Ja­balpur. In case a driver/rider breaks traf­fic rules, an e-chal­lan is gen­er­ated au­to­mat­i­cally, and then sent to the postal ad­dress of the ve­hi­cle owner. But it ap­pears the new sys­tem was not tested thor­oughly be­fore re­lease. There have been in­stances when four-wheeler own­ers have been is­sued chal­lans for not wear­ing the hel­met. The depart­ment is now grap­pling with com­plaints rather than solv­ing them.
