Maharashtra traffic police may go hi-tech with BlackBerry mobile phones and Bluetooth printers to rein in traffic violators and also collect tax if the state Home Department acts on recommendations by the Estimates Committee.

The Estimates Committee report for 2010-11, released recently, recommended that the transport division of the Home Department considers a proposal to start online payment of vehicle tax and registering traffic crimes online with the help of BlackBerry mobiles on the lines of the Karnataka government.

“Considering fast changing techniques in today’s modern world, the Department should give systems such as BlackBerry mobiles to the traffic cops for fast action and also increase revenue,” the committee report said.
