Road Operations Management System coming mid-March

Published:Friday | February 28, 2014 | 4:40 PM

The Transport Authority has announced a full roll out of its Road Operations Management System, which will see hand held devices being utilised by Route Inspectors by mid-March, to verify information presented by operators of public passenger vehicles.



The system will enable inspectors carrying out routine checks, to immediately access numerous databases that provide information on traffic offences, traffic tickets, currency of road licences and driver history.



This disclosure was made by Managing Director of the Transport Authority, Donald Foster, at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on February 26.



Foster explained that the system is a module of the TA’s Licensing Management System, which introduces hand held devices into road operations of the Authority.



General Manager for Finance and Planning at the Transport Authority, Karey Rowe, pointed out that the agency is moving towards using anniversary dates to renew road licences and is awaiting amendments to the legislation to implement that system.



He added that when the system is in place, ROMS will also be used to determine the renewal date of road licences.
