From today, Queenslanders will be given the option to receive traffic infringement notices via email and text message.
The new Queensland Police Service application was launched at a media conference today.
Instead of handwriting the fines or issuing them through the post, officers equipped with QLiTE devices will now be able to issue them through email or MMS.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Dale Pointon of Road Policing Command said the introduction of email and MMS e-ticketing will streamline processes, improve efficiencies and provide government savings.
“The issue of traffic tickets by email and MMS will see the QPS remain at the forefront of innovation and service delivery to our community.”
Acting Inspector Gavin Raison said Queensland was the first jurisdiction to introduce real-time issue of tickets via email and MMS.
“It is important to stress that this in an opt-in system. You will only receive a TIN by email or MMS if you have spoken to an officer and volunteered to receive it this way.
E-ticketing will begin from today.
