Island Traffic Authority to roll out Computerized Vehicle Management System

by January 11th, 2017

The Island Traffic Authority, ITA, will be rolling out a Computerized Vehicle Management System, at its depots tomorrow.

The vehicle management system is designed to technologically capture all motor vehicle and drivers licence information, currently at depots island-wide.

The system will allow the ITA, to move from its paper based manual system to a digital system.

Chief Technical Director in the Ministry of Transport, Dr. Janine Dawkins, says the Vehicle Management System will address loopholes that exist within the transport sector.

 

Meantime, Managing Director of the Island Traffic Authority, Ludlou Powell says the initiative will be rolled out in phases beginning with the pilot in Kingston and St. Andrew.

He adds, that there will be slight modifications to motor vehicle fitness issued under the new system.

 

Transport Minister Mike Henry, lauded the programme which he says will assist the ITA in reducing the waiting time for motorists, to get fitness for vehicles.

Mr. Henry says, the initiative will ensure that the required revenue is collected for the certification of vehicles.

 

All three individuals were speaking at a press conference at the transport ministry in Kingston, this morning.
