WHAT HAPPENS IF
1.YOU DO NOT STOP AT THE RED LIGHT
5 traffic signal points are fitted with enforcement cameras that send signals directly to the new Enforcement Automation Center. So every time a vehicle crosses the red light its photograph would be transferred to the department. This provides the vehicle number and the proof of you having broken the law. A notice would be served to you on the basis of this alone. Every offence is recorded at the Centre and habitual offenders could face steep fines or even have their licenses revoked.
In addition there are 80 survelliance cameras which keep a watch on all kind of traffic violations.
2.YOU DRINK AND DRIVE or SPEED

If you test positive for drunken driving then your vehicle would be seized and you would be required to come to court in person to pay your fines. Not only this, your offence would be recorded at a Enforcement Automation Center and can be accessed at any time by the inspectors. Remember that driving under the influence of liquor is a serious offence and can lead to driver being imprisoned. The same is the case for those who are found driving over the speed limits set. If found to be habitual offender the fines would not only increase but you stand to lose your driving license too.
3.YOU HAVE NOT PAID THE FINE
At the Enforcement Automation Center every offence and the penalty imposed is recorded. In case you have not paid the fine for the offence committed by you in the given period, the officers are alerted on their blackberry mobiles and they could confiscate your vehicle either from your premises or anywhere on the road.
