Digital banking impacts traffic cop corruption

In the Indian city of Hyderabad the corruption among traffic police is being tackled by a policy of cashless fines

“the new initiative scraps on-the-spot cash payments, instead issuing e-tickets to those at fault and requiring that they pay their fines online, at special booths or through post offices.”

It sounds like an interesting side-effect of the combination of digital banking and accurate vehicle/personal ID.
