Bengaluru Traffic Police Launches ‘Public Eye’ To Allow Citizens To Report Traffic Violators

One of the problems faced by our country’s increasingly congested roads is that there is blatant violation of traffic rules. In most cases, people tend to follow traffic rules only when there is a traffic cop in the vicinity.

How it works?

1. If you see a person or vehicle violating a particular traffic rule, take a picture of the violation on your phone.
2. Next, share this photograph along with your details either via their mobile app or via their website.
3. That’s it!

Your details will be kept confidential.

While there are concerns about false accusations, we believe those can be ironed out in the near future. Embracing technology and democratizing traffic management is definitely a huge step forward!
