ISLAMABAD: As many as 2,168 e-tickets were issued to motorists over various traffic violations captured through safe city cameras in Islamabad during the last one month.
The e-tickets were delivered to the violators at their home address, available with excise and taxation office, IGP Islamabad Qazi Jameelur Rehman said in a news release on Monday.
A copy of ticket was being attached with master file of the vehicle at excise office over non-payment of penalty amount within the given time, the IGP said, adding that the car owners who were subjected to submit fine would not be able to sell or transfer their vehicles until clearance of dues.
The fine amount could be paid through JS Bank, Jazz cash, mobile accounts and other digital means, he said, adding that there was a significant decline observed in the number of road mishaps and traffic violations in the federal capital after introducing this new ticket system.
The move was aimed at getting residents of the capital to abide by traffic laws even in the absence of wardens with the use of modern technology, he maintained.
