Bangalore is going hi-tech all the way. Cops with Blackberry devices will soon be a common sight here. Not even the LAPD or NYPD can match up. This is what today’s Times of India reported.
The traffic police have just acquired 280 Blackberry phones. That’s said to be higher than what the Los Angeles police have (200 units), and significantly higher than the Seattle and New York police (100 each).

Using this device, the cops will have all the information they need about the offender; name, address, previous violations etc, right at their fingertips.
This news couldn’t have come at a better time. Bangalore currently struggles with its daily dose of traffic woes and with this new technology, you will only see a better organized and disciplined traffic in this city; something we all long to see.
What’s more… they also plan to introduce another new device, with which you can pay your fines on the spot by using your debit or credit cards. How easier can it get?
