To enhance traffic management and ensure road safety, the Islamabad Police have recently updated their Digital License Management System (DLMS).
This significant upgrade aims to streamline information on suspects and e-challan defaulters, ultimately contributing to more effective law enforcement on the city’s roads.
Digital License Management System
The Digital License Management System (DLMS) is a pivotal tool for Islamabad Police in managing traffic violations and ensuring road safety. This system harnesses the power of digital technology to track and manage e-challans and suspect information efficiently.
Crucial Role of Safe City Command and Control Center
The Safe City Command and Control Center is critical to this traffic management ecosystem. They recently provided the Police Khidmat Center and traffic offices with a list of 145 traffic rule violators.
This valuable information is a foundation for enforcing traffic regulations and penalizing defaulters.
Settlement of E-Challans
Due to the DLMS and the information provided by the Safe City Command and Control Center, 995 e-challans were settled by 82 violators at traffic offices.
This not only demonstrates the effectiveness of the system but also encourages compliance with traffic rules.
Strict Action Against Defaulters
For those who fail to settle their e-challans, the Islamabad Police have taken strict action by suspending the licenses of 63 individuals. This stern approach emphasizes the importance of adhering to traffic regulations and the consequences of non-compliance.
Leveraging Technology for Enforcement
The Islamabad Police have effectively harnessed technology to identify e-challan violators. Safe City cameras and the recently introduced Brief Cam alerts have been instrumental.
These technologies aid in recognizing vehicles associated with e-challan defaulters, ensuring that traffic violations do not go unnoticed.
Reducing Traffic Violations
Under the leadership of Chief Traffic Officer Muhammad Sarfraz Virk, the Islamabad Police have launched a crackdown on traffic law violators.
This initiative has yielded impressive results, with traffic violations decreasing by 38,000 cases in October and November 2023 compared to the same period the previous year.
The enhanced fines and stringent actions against serious violations, including underage drivers and one-way violators, have played a significant role in achieving this positive outcome.
