Traffic is a very big issue for the Hyderabad traffic police. But the department has managed to punish the offenders, specially in the drunken driving cases. For this, the cops used latest technology and till date, the police used cameras and manually upload the vehicle details along with photograph of the offenders in their office computers. But the police could not record the details of drivers and their license details.
To solve this problem, the police department decided to use tablets or tabs which will have a mandatory field to record licence details of the offenders. With the help of these tabs, the police would click the photograph and also record the video of the offence. The video and photo along with details like vehicle registration, driver's licence, time and location of the offence will be updated real-time on traffic police server, which would be linked to the regional transport authority (RTA) database. The video and photo will also work as solid evidence in case someone wishes to challenge the charges.
From December, police will start using tabs and the department has ordered 125 tabs. They would be given to 38 traffic inspectors, 25 officers and the rest to sub-inspectors and other staff. All tabs would be connected to the central server at the traffic control room with high speed internet connection.
