Delhi Police app to inculcate traffic rules
Delhi Police on Thursday launched a mobile app through which residents can keep tab on traffic violators and send their videos or photographs. The person who posts the maximum would be rewarded.
The app named “Traffic Sentinel”, that is a part of a reward scheme, will come as an additional feature in the already existing Delhi Police’s mobile apps “Delhi Police... One Touch Away” app and “Delhi Traffic Police” app.
Launching the scheme, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi said: “This will be an empowering tool in the hands of the common citizen who will get a platform to report traffic offences occurring on the roads of Delhi to the authorities.”
“The mode of reporting the traffic offence will be simple by just clicking a photo or a video through the app on the phone and press the send button.”
Bassi explained that the app will only ask basic information such as place of offence, date and time.
“In GPS enabled phones, the date, time and location will also be automatically embedded on the photograph.”
