A software called ‘Tselina’ integrated with Nokia E5 capture and report traffic rule violators in the city. ‘Tselina’ that will allow them to capture photo evidence of the traffic violation including vehicle with the surroundings, license plate and the driver’s face if possible. More than 1,000 Photos have been captured till date.
