Traffic police go hi-tech

Looks like the Simputer has found a buyer at last. From the first week of May the city's traffic police will discard their challan books and carry these indigenously built PDAs. The details of any traffic offence will be entered directly into these handhelds which will be transmitted to a server. The centrally located server will update the handhelds with the latest data. A notice and receipt will be generated on the spot and the fine will be collected right away as well. By drawing upon previous data the department will levy higher fines on habitual offenders. These machines have been sponsored by the CII.
