"Insya Allah (God Willing), if it is approved by the National Headquarters (Mabes Polri), we will participate in the phase 2 launching of e-TLE nationally at the end of April," said South Kalimantan Police Chief Insp.Gen. Rikwanto in Banjarmasin, Tuesday.
Preparations are ongoing, such as installing equipment, the readiness of members as operators, and the socialization to the public.
At the first stage, e-TLE cameras are installed in three places, namely the intersection on Jalan Ahmad Yani km 6, the intersection of Hotel Mentari, and Jalan Lambung Mangkurat.
According to Rikwanto, e-TLE will record all activities of passing drivers. Each violation will be processed and the offender will be sent a ticket to the house according to the address recorded in the vehicle documents.
"The implementation of e-TLE is expected to create a culture of orderly traffic because road users know they are continuously monitored for 1x24 hours even though there is no police on the field," he said.
