TEMPO.CO, Cikarang - The Bekasi Regency Government plans to install ten units of electronic traffic law enforcement (E-TLE) or e-ticketing cameras on its four main streets. The first cameras to be operated will be those at the SGC intersection, on Jl. RE Martadhinata, North Cikarang.
“This electronic ticketing is planned to be implemented at the SGC intersection for the initial stage,” said the regency’s Communication and Informatics Agency Secretary, Ade Komarudin, in a statement on Friday, March 5, 2021.
Three other streets that will also be equipped with the cameras are Jl. Ki Hajar Dewantara in front of the Bekasi Metro Police Headquarters, the Ejip intersection, and the intersection heading to Bekasi Government Office Complex in Delta Mas. “One street will have up to three cameras,” he added.
According to Ade, the cameras are furnished with intelligent video analytics technology that will allow detailed and automatic monitoring. The information and data center of the system will be directly monitored by the regional police.
“We support the system as this is part of the smart city program,” Ade said.
Bekasi Resort Police Chief Sr. Comr. Hendra Gunawan said the policy was in line with the National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo's program on transparent law enforcement in the traffic sector. For the initial stage, the E-TLE cameras at the SGC intersection will be operated starting mid-March.
“Traffic violations that are subject to this e-ticketing include violations of street markings, traffic signs, helmet use, and seat belt use, up to the use of cell phones while driving,” Hendra explained.
