Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

The today asked government to study how metros like Delhi, and others cope with traffic issues and violations and see if the same can be implemented in also.

A bench headed by Justice said just as the government initiated the E-Challan system in Mumbai, whereby traffic violations along major stretches are detected by CCTV cameras and the violators thus identified through their registered number plates are penalised, it could begin a similar system in Pune.



The bench directed the government to inform the what measures can be implemented to tackle the increasing traffic violations in on October 25.

The directions came when the bench was hearing a (PIL) filed by five residents.

They have sought that CCTV cameras be installed at major traffic junctions in and other measures be taken by the traffic department to curb violations in and rest of the state.

During the last hearing in August this year, the bench had directed the state government to file a reply whether it was "possible to introduce a system for automatic registration of complaints against the owners of such vehicles that flout traffic norms."

The state today sought additional time to file its reply.
