E-traffic prosecution system launched

Rangpur Range of Bangladesh Police on Friday launched e-traffic prosecution system in all areas under its jurisdiction to enable traffic rules violators in depositing penalty money easily in a hassle-free manner. Deputy Inspector General (DIG) for Rangpur Range Devdas Bhattacharya introduced the system at a function held at Rangpur Police Lines School and College hall room here as the chief guest.

Rangpur Metropolitan Police Commissioner Abdul Alim Mahmud attended the function as special guest. Superintendent of Police (SP) for Rangpur Biplob Kumar Sarkar and SPs of other seven districts under Rangpur Range Police, Senior Officer of U-cash ATM Tahmiduzzman, General Manger of Grameen Bank for Rajshahi Zone Mohammad Quamrul Alam Sarker, Q-cash official Shah Musfikur Rahman and senior police officials were present. DIG Devdas Bhattacharya said the Road Transport Act-2018 would be useful to bring back order in the road traffic system.

 “This Act has not been enacted to raise amount of fines for traffic rule violators to realise more money. But, it has been enacted aiming at bringing discipline in the road traffic system for building a safe country,” he said. The e-traffic prosecution system would relieve clients from standing in queues or running after offices and courts reducing their sufferings and saving times making payment process of fined money easier and transparent. The new system will enable clients in depositing fined money soon after recording cases relating to violation of traffic rules and regulations through U-cash and Q-cash easily utilising the new digitised system at different booths.

 “The e-traffic prosecution system will ensure transparency in traffic policing activities, oblige drivers in abiding by traffic rules and keeping necessary documents while driving vehicles on the roads and highways to reduce the number of road accidents,” he said. Later, all eight SPs of eight districts under Rangpur Range Police exchanged contracts signed with U-cash, Grameenphone and Q-cash to enable traffic rule violator clients in paying fined money easily at different booths in Rangpur division.
