Bali Police Department has begun installing electronic devices as part of the preparation stage of the Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) in Denpasar.

This new system will automatically capture traffic violations such as speeding, expired registration, riding two-wheelers without a helmet, driving without a seatbelt on, red lights, distracted driving, and more.

The Director of Denpasar Traffic Officer, Kombes Pol Indra confirmed that officers started the installation of electronic devices in several different locations of Denpasar on Saturday (17/4).

“We’ve already installed the devices in some intersections in Denpasar such as Buagan intersection and Imam Bonjol – Teuku Umar intersection on Saturday evening,” Kombes Pol Indra said on Sunday.

The devices are currently under observation by the police department to assure that they’re able to work effectively in capturing the registration number of vehicles that violate traffic rules on the road.

“We’re still observing the devices to synchronize the data with the Registration Administrator System (SAMSAT) before officially implementing this method” Indra added.

The ETLE is expected to begin operating by May 2021 after officially being launched by the Head of the Indonesian Police Department, Police General Listyo Sigit Prabowo.

Indra also explained that when this system finally runs in the near future, it will identify traffic violators by their registration number, and the ticket would be delivered to their address by mail.

“The capture from those cameras would be accurate evidence as it will give us the exact information about traffic violations in public roads” Kombes Pol Indra concluded.

What will the Police be needed for at these intersections now ? Maybe they can start fighting real crime. time to start wearing a seatbelt again I guess, no big deal :-) May not be long before we see facial recognition camera's in Bali's streets, then I think the streets will be much safer for the general public
