Biometric verification is any means by which a person can be uniquely identified by evaluating one or more distinguishing biological traits. Unique identifiers include fingerprints, hand geometry, earlobe geometry, retina and iris patterns, voice waves, DNA, and signatures. The most primitive and extensively used form of biometric verification is fingerprinting. Biometric verification has advanced considerably with the advent of computerized databases and the digitisation of analogue data, allowing for almost instantaneous personal identification.
A nation’s disciplined traffic system indicates the civic mindedness, sense of responsibility of its people and government. However the traffic police has managed to establish a well-controlled traffic system, reflecting a civilised nation.
