Islamabad -  Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) has turned out to be a major ‘bread earner’ for the federal government as it collected over Rs366 million as fine from the road users in the capital city during the last 18 months.

According to the ITP, it issued fine tickets to 1195,846 traffic violators during June 2013 to February 2015 and deposited more than Rs366 million collected as fine in the government exchequer. It claimed that the police applied law equally and eliminated VIP culture from the capital. Continuing with its zero tolerance policy, it issued tickets to 1271 VIPs also.

The ITP issued 26,803 non-professional licences and 3228 professional driving licences during the said period and also collected millions of rupees under the head of licence fee. For operational purposes, the ITP has been divided into four zones; City, Margalla, Industrial Area and Rural zone. Each zone is further divided into beats for better policing. The Challan Branch has also been computerized so as to facilitate the violators when they approach for collection of seized documents.
