eNaTIS to combat cross-border vehicle theft

2011-09-07 16:05
Johannesburg - Tasima, the developer and operator of the Electronic National Traffic Information System (eNaTIS), said on Wednesday there were plans to roll out the system into other South African Development Community (SADC) countries, following its successful introduction and adoption in SA.

Tasima CEO Tebogo Mphuti said progress was already being made to introduce the system in Namibia and Lesotho, with Mozambique and Botswana also in the early stages of considering eNaTIS.

The system aims to modernise the management of vehicle and driver registration and licensing details and sharply reduce the incidence of cross-border vehicle theft.

However, the implementation is still subject to regional inter-governmental negotiations.

"Due to the critical security aspects embedded in the system, it would be critically important for Tasima to be involved in implementing eNaTIS in other SADC countries, he said.

"Based on our experience over the past few years in SA, we firmly believe that eNaTIS would sharply reduce cross-border theft of vehicles in the SADC region and also provide member countries with a state-of-the-art vehicle and driver registration and licensing system."

The Johannesburg-based company has been operating the system through a public-private partnership with the national department of transport since 2007.
