Blockchain, is a platform which aims to bring a new perspective in the field of security. This technology provides a secure and an immutable platform for any kind of transaction in terms of goods, services and many more. This technology serves as a secure and transparent platform for the users who wants to change their environment from a centralized to a decentralized platform. Any relevant application which benefits from a decentralized platform can be migrated to Blockchain easily. In this paper, an implementation of vehicle registration and tracking of traffic violators with the use of Blockchain technology is discussed. Migrating this application to Blockchain improves the transparency, security, immutability to the users as well as to the governmental organization.
