City's traffic police from tomorrow will start using advanced breath analysers which will have built-in cameras and printers that will help them in keeping records about those indulging in drunken driving.

Using these advanced breath analysers, traffic police say it would be easier to keep a tab on drunk drivers.

"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.

A few days ago, the city traffic police also started issuing e-challans to penalise motorists, who violate traffic rules.
