A driver identification procedure has also been enabled for those penalties that require it, such as those that involve deduction of points or those imposed on a legal person

The municipal spokesman recalls that “from the local government, we continue to implement different tools and mechanisms aimed at modernizing the Local Administration, making it closer, simple, open and accessible to all citizens”
 
The local government has activated in the Virtual Office of the City Council of El Ejido two new procedures that will facilitate the citizens the procedures related to traffic report bulletins. So it is that, from now on, the ejidenses will be able to voluntarily make the payment of their fines online, thus avoiding having to travel to the Collection Office to make the corresponding income.

Payment may be made by the driver of the vehicle, the owner of the vehicle and, even, a third person representing the previous two, accessing by digital certificate. In addition, the taxpayer will not lose the possibility of obtaining the 50% bonus if the payment of the penalty becomes effective within the period established by law.

The spokesman of the local government and Councilor for Finance and Contracting, José Francisco Rivera, explained that "with this new telematic procedure, travel to the different branches of the City Hall is avoided to pay the penalty of traffic imposed, and can be done comfortably from home." In this sense, Rivera recalled that "from the local government, we continue to implement different tools and procedures aimed at modernizing the Local Administration, making it closer, participatory, transparent and accessible to all citizens."

Likewise, thanks to this new tool it is possible that the payment can be made by credit or debit card and, even, a payment letter can be generated that can be paid at any Cajamar office. And whoever wishes may do so as usual, in person and in cash at the Municipal Collection units.

The local government has also enabled another new procedure within the Virtual Office, in this case to be able to identify the driver in those sanctions that require it, such as those that involve deduction of points or those imposed on a legal person. The spokesman has stressed that "with this new virtual procedure, any administrator can comply, in a few minutes, with the obligation to identify the driver, thus avoiding penalties that can reach up to 1,000 euros."

Finally, the local manager has influenced “the good results and the high number of procedures that are being carried out through the Virtual Office since it was launched, more than a year ago. And this is, therefore, has become a platform that allows residents, among many other actions, to pay taxes and municipal fees or obtain certain licenses via the Internet, always through the digital certificate, in a simple way , fast and without having to endure queues and waiting hours. ”
