The city of Lyon, second largest urban area of France, has taken a major step in upgrading its electronic fines devices to a brand new digital solution provided by YouTransactor. This key investment will support the city in its plan to modernise operational services of its Municipal Police, ensuring public safety of half a million people in the metropolis.
The solution will help the city’s 350 police officers to issue electronic fines from their smartphone in a fast and reliable way, simplifying their administrative follow-up tasks, and avoiding transcription errors of old paper based fines. For the public, electronic fines will prevent loss or theft of fine payment stamps from windscreens, minimizing the risk of increased fines.
Over the last years, electronic fines have significantly helped lower road traffic offenses (parking, failure to give way, driving against the flow of traffic, speeding etc.) to make cities safer.
