PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Wednesday inaugurated e-ticketing system to improve the traffic monitoring system and computerise the records of fines and penalties in case of traffic rules’ violation.

The chief minister inaugurated the e-ticketing system at the Malik Saad Shaheed Police Lines. He was accompanied by cabinet ministers, Inspector General of Police Sanaullah Abbasi, Capital City Police Officer Mohammad Ali Gandapur and other officials.

“The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police were ahead of other law-enforcement agencies in the country. We are going to digitalise all the other government departments to facilitate the general public,” said Mahmood Khan. He added that the KP government has started such initiatives from the previous tenure as part of the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan towards a digital Pakistan. The chief minister said the PTI government has introduced several initiatives in KP Police and more will be introduced in coming days. He appreciated the hard work and commitment of the officers and jawans of the police force that offered more sacrifices than any other force.

The chief minister was informed that the e-ticketing system will improve the traffic monitoring as well as digitalise the records of the fines and penalties in case of traffic violations by the motorists.

The CCPO told the CM that over 5,000 franchises have been authorised to collect fines from the drivers while over 1100 cops have been imparted relevant training and provided gadgets for the e-ticketing system. He added that the system will be connected with the Safe City Project that is to be launched soon for improved law and order in the provincial capital.
