- The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) yesterday said 100,000 of the smart cards have been made in readiness for distribution to motorists.
- The NTSA, which is progressively digitising its operations, has acquired 500 card readers to decode user information and traffic offences history.
- The information will be recorded in a chip that is embedded in the plastic card.
- The card comes loaded with points to be deducted every time a motorist commits a traffic offence.
- Repeat offenders who will have exhausted their points will permanently lose their licences, have them confiscated temporarily, pay spot fines or be made to attend refresher driving classes.
