Lahore's New E-Challan System for Traffic Violations

Lahore has implemented a new electronic challan (e-challan) system to address violations such as improper lane usage, stop line breaches, and zebra crossing infractions. Offenders will now receive fines directly at their homes, streamlining the penalty process and ensuring that traffic laws are upheld more efficiently.

This move comes in response to a staggering 73,000 violations recorded in a single day by Safe City cameras. Chief Traffic Police Officer (CTO) Amara Athar emphasized the importance of strict lane discipline for maintaining a smooth flow of traffic in the city. Athar highlighted the ongoing improvements to road markings and lane lines, with a particular focus on ensuring motorcyclists adhere to using the far left lane.

CTO Athar noted that enforcement of lane discipline will be especially rigorous on Lahore's model roads. Recent traffic monitoring data has shown significant non-compliance, with 15,281 deliberate traffic signal violations, 12,000 cases of overspeeding, and 3,000 incidents of one-way traffic breaches. This data underscores the need for stringent measures to improve road safety and traffic management.

Additionally, over 41,000 instances of lane and stop line violations were recorded. These numbers illustrate the widespread disregard for traffic rules and the critical need for enhanced enforcement mechanisms. The introduction of the e-challan system is a step towards rectifying this issue by making it easier to penalize offenders and deter future violations.

So far this year, Lahore has issued e-challans to 700,000 vehicles for failing to adhere to lane discipline, reflecting the city's commitment to improving traffic conditions. The e-challan system not only simplifies the enforcement process but also acts as a deterrent, encouraging drivers to follow traffic rules more diligently.
