The Jakarta Police will conduct a trial run of the electronic-based ticketing system, dubbed Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE), on Oct. 1.
Leading up to the date, they have intensified efforts to encourage motorists to complete their vehicle ownership documents (BPKBs) by including phone numbers and email addresses.
“Documents for new vehicles or updated documents, which will be issued on Oct. 1, should contain the phone numbers and email addresses of the vehicles’ owners,” said Jakarta Police traffic unit chief Sr. Comr. Yusuf as quoted by kompas.com on Monday.
The phone numbers and email addresses, Yusuf added, would help police officers enforce the ETLE, saying that they would contact the vehicles’ owners by phone or via email.
Tickets will be posted to those who have flouted traffic laws.
“I hope that the ETLE will be able to help the police work more effectively,” Yusuf said, noting that the trial run would be conducted on Jl. Sudirman and Jl. MH Thamrin in Central Jakarta.
In order to record transgressions, the police procured CCTV cameras from China, which will be operational 24 hours per day. (vla)
