The Traffic Automation Enforcement Centre (TAEC) was inaugurated by District in-charge Minister V. Sreenivasa Prasad at the office of the City Police Commissioner in Nazarbad this morning.

The Centre, set up on the lines of a similar one in Bangalore, will create a database of traffic rule violators and notice will be sent to the owners of such vehicles through post along with photographs of traffic violations. The levied fine should be paid at the jurisdiction’s Traffic Police Station.

Surveillance Cameras have been installed at important junctions in city. Repeated violations will attract cancellation of driving licence. The system will put an end to the Police stopping vehicles on roads, according to city Police Commissioner Dr. M.A. Saleem.

Speaking on the occasion, Sreenivasa Prasad said that the TAEC would help in curbing traffic violations in city. He appealed to the residents to co-operate with the Traffic Police and transform the city into a model city for best traffic control.
