Facebook aids India traffic police

Photos and video of violators posted on social website help authorities hold them accountable.

    But New Delhi's police have come up with a novel solution for tracking violations.

    Photos and video of violators taken by either police or normal bystanders are being posted on a special Facebook page to help hold them accountable.
