From June 1, 2023, issuing of traffic violation challans will go smart.
The transport department will start issuing e-challans for violations captured by CCTV cameras from tomorrow.
Smart Signals will be operational at 13 places in and around Panaji including Merces and Porvorim to detect and penalise traffic offences remotely.
The police will also maintain a hawk's eye over traffic rule violators.
Use of mobile phone while driving, failure to obey traffic signs, not wearing seat belt and not wearing helmet will be dealt with strictly.
The Directorate of Transport has already released a list specifying the fines to be levied on traffic rule violators through the Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled smart signal system.
The new system has been designed to capture number plates of vehicles and and faces of individuals who violate traffic rules.
