TRAFFIC TICKET MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (TTMS) GETS MAJOR UPGRADE

A major update to Jamaica’s Traffic Ticket Management System (TTMS)  has rectified 240,000 traffic tickets recorded as failed payments, from September 2010 to April 2019. 

The senior director for the security ministry’s Major Technology Transformation Branch, Arvel Grant, links the decade long backlog to errors in decoding the driver’s license number or traffic offence code on handwritten tickets, and creating scenarios where a ticket was paid at the Tax Authority. 

The update now ensures accurate information is available to government agencies.
