Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Jakarta Metropolitan Police's Traffic Management Center recorded at least 1,134 traffic violators captured by 12 cameras of Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) e-ticketing system installed in the capital city has been effective since early July.

Majority of the traffic violators were car drivers who breached the odd-even license plate traffic policy and did not wear seat-belts while driving, the Jakarta Metropolitan Police's Traffic Management Center revealed on its official Twitter account on Tuesday.

The cameras of this ELTE e-ticketing technology is able to catch the acts of traffic offences of those in cars, such as violating the odd-even and speeding policies, failing to wear seat belt, and using mobile phone while driving.

These cameras have so far been installed in 10 strategic areas in Jakarta, including the Sudirman-MH Thamrin Roads. The Jakarta provincial government and police plan to increase the existing number of the installed cameras to 81 units until September or October 2019.

With the increased number of cameras, personnel of the Traffic Directorate of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police are able to get detailed information of the vehicle and violations of car drivers.

In many big cities of developing and developed countries, the presence of installed cameras for catching traffic violators has been a common thing for residents and visitors.

In Singapore, for instance, the road traffic offences are governed by the Road Traffic Act (RTA), according to Singapore's Legal Advice.

As revealed in "singaporelegaladvice.com", road traffic offences commonly found in the city state are "exceeding the speed limit", "use of mobile phone while driving", and "driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs".

In the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), the Australian Federal Police (AFP) revealed in its official website that those violating such traffic offences as speeding, unregistered vehicles, negligence driving would receive Traffic Infringement Notices.

"Penalty amounts for Traffic Infringement Notices are set by the ACT Government," the AFP revealed.

The traffic violators are then required to pay fines through several options, such as online payment through the ACT Government's Road Transport Authority (RTA) website; paying at any post office, and Bpay.
