RANGPUR Rangpur Range of Bangladesh Police today

launched e-traffic prosecution system in all districts under its jurisdiction

to enable traffic rules violators in depositing penalty money easily in a

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.
