“With the help of advanced breath analysers, traffic police will able to get a photograph of the offending motorist or bikers. They will also able get information about the repeat offenders, collected in the data base,” an official said.
To begin with, 56 breath analysers will be distributed among the personnel manning road traffic. Through these state-of-the-art equipment, data will be collected on the spot and sent to a central server.
The adoption of this new technology is expected to be a major help for the police during the festive season when revellers are often seen drunk driving.
A few days ago, the city traffic police also started issuing e-challans to penalise motorists who violate traffic rules.
