The Ahmedabad traffic police have again revived the e-challan project under which challans for traffic infringements will be delivered to offenders on their doorstep. Interestingly, this will be done in collaboration with international agencies. Senior officials of traffic police indicated that the new system will be launched as a pilot project from June 2015. The existing database of vehicle owners has been updated for the purpose, said senior officers. Additional commissioner of police (traffic), said that efforts were being made to conduct road surveillance electronically through a network of CCTV cameras integrated with traffic signals.Other initiatives taken up by the traffic police include a software analysis system for traffic jams and personnel appraisal. Senior officials said that they have started collating data from various sources to understand the trouble spots and map them. The data is being collected from such sources as 1095-traffic helpline, 100-city police control room, complaints on Facebook page and WhatsApp group and direct response from citizens in the form of letters and emails.
