The City Traffic Police—CTP has formed 17 special squads for going after the e-challan defaulters.
Under the latest crackdown operation, 34 traffic wardens would be positioned throughout the city for recovering the challan payments. These special teams would strictly be monitoring such automobiles across the city.
Since the e-challan system offers the ticket to the address of the automobile owner, the CTP teams could also raid their houses for confiscating the vehicles.
The confiscated vehicles would only be released once the e-challans are paid. But no further penalty would be added to the delayed submission.
According to the details, the CTP would go after the defaulter with heavy unpaid challans in the initial phase. The crackdown against the violators would continue until the clearance of the backlog.
The city traffic police in collaboration with the Punjab Safe City Authority had introduced the electronic challan system in Lahore back in September last year. Since then, it has been an effective tool for controlling the traffic violations in the provincial capital.
Earlier, the introduction of the e-challans has resulted in a significant drop in traffic violations in Lahore, as people are afraid of the heavy fines, and have started to respect the traffic laws.
