Bali police have begun installing Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) systems in Denpasar on Saturday 17 April.
Traffic Director of Bali Police Commissioner Indra explained that the installation of ETLE equipment began at the intersection of Teuku Umar – Imam Bonjol Streets.
“We will use the license plate image capture. The system is synchronized and license plate numbers will be recorded,” Indra explained.
Then a letter, certified by a police officer, will be sent to the address of the owner of the vehicle, provided during registration. Also, the police will have at their disposal photographs of the violations committed, indicating the day and time of the incident.
Commissioner Indra explained that there are 10 types of traffic violations that are punishable, especially for obvious traffic violations.
Among them: violations of the rules of signs, not using a helmet, using a mobile phone while driving, not using a seat belt, speeding, driving after the expiration of the vehicle registration, expiration of tax, and others. Bali Police are planning to implement ETLE in stages, starting from 4 locations on the main streets of Denpasar.
