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

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 Pune residents.

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