Integrated Traffic Management System launched in Howrah

Integrated Traffic Management System launched in Howrah

Howrah police on Tuesday introduced the integrated traffic management system (ITMS) in the presence of Minister Arup Roy and the Howrah City Police Commissioner with a promise of easing traffic flow on the city's highly congested roads.

The 500-year-old city perpetually struggles to cope with 2.5% road space along with rapid unplanned development. After formation of the commissionerate, there has been an effort to bring a method to the madness called Howrah traffic.

As part of the e-traffic management system, the traffic officer will now issue an e-challan against traffic offences. Twenty-five tablets loaded with relevant software were distributed among the traffic officers.

Much of an officer's time is spent only on paper work against a single offence. From now, the traffic officer will only type the relevant portion and choose the option in case of offences. The e-challan can be generated quickly and the officer can devote more time to preventing traffic offences.

An offender can also make e-payment of the fine. The Howrah police have entered into an agreement with SBI. If the offender is ready to pay Rs 30 extra, the seized documents will be couriered to him or her. The tab is connected with the camera; so everything can be monitored from the central traffic control room.

To familiarize people with the new system, the old manual system will initially be continued along with the new e-system. Eventually, 55 major crossings will come under this e-surveillance. It is expected to ease traffic at Howrah station area, Kona Expressway, Foreshore Road, Howrah Maidan area, Salkia and Belur.

The Howrah police will also offer a value-added service for second-hand vehicle buyers. From the police website, a second-hand vehicle buyer can know about all the pending cases against a vehicle by just putting the registration number and chassis number. So, a buyer can decide whether to buy the car.

There will be special drive against illegal parking. To increase road space, on-road parking will be banned and there will be stringent action against illegal parking.
Howrah police will install two more radio frequency identifying devices along with the existing two. These devices record the taxis entering and leaving Howrah station with the exact record of timing. If a taxi driver misbehaves with a passenger or if a passenger leaves luggage behind in a taxi, the passenger can come back to Howrah police to inform the time he or she left Howrah station. The taxi can be identified and necessary measures taken by police.
