CTPL revisits manual challan system

Acting CTO issued orders for issuance of manual challans for traffic signal violations

Our Correspondent June 03, 2022


City Traffic Police Lahore (CTPL) readies itself to hand out manual challans throughout the provincial capital, after the Lahore High Court declared e-challans issued by the Punjab Safe City Authority (PSCA) illegal.

The PSCA launched the e-challan system from September 2018. Under the e-challan system, CCTV cameras captured traffic violations in different parts of the city. These cameras would capture violations and the tickets would be delivered at the house of the violator. The PSCA started sending warning tickets to different violators last year.

Acting Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Asif Siddique issued orders on Thursday for the issuance of manual challans for traffic signal violations. He earlier said that the signal violations tickets in the provincial capital were being issued by PSCA. He also directed wardens to issue tickets against lane, line and stop line violations.
