INCREASE IN TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS-
With the progress of the unlocking in India, the crowd can be seen again in public places. Limited time is allowed during which people can come out. The number of motor vehicles running on the road is also increasing. With this, a hick in the number of traffic violations in the country is also reported.
The traffic police departments in various states and areas are approaching different methods to control the increasing traffic violations.
NEW APPROACH TO CURB TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS IN SURAT-
The Surat traffic police department tried a new method to punish the traffic violators and make them realize their mistakes. They announced new rules for those violating the traffic rules in Surat. According to this rule, if any person is caught violating traffic rules in Surat, not only will they be fined and challaned, but they will also receive a sticker.
- This is an approach that has been undertaken by the Surat traffic police under the ‘i- follow 21’ campaign.
- This campaign was recently started by the traffic police department in Surat.
- The aim of this campaign is to create awareness among the people regarding traffic rules.
STICKERS WILL BE GIVEN TO TRAFFIC VIOLATORS-
- This sticker will be tagged on the violator’s vehicles stating the rule they have violated.
- These stickers will be very hard to remove from the vehicles, causing the violators to be ashamed of their offenses. Thus, the people in Surat will try not to violate traffic rules.
- The Surat traffic police said that they have targeted to punish a total of 50,000 vehicles violating traffic rules within the next month in Surat.
- The three most common traffic violations that have been recorded are- driving two-wheelers without helmets, parking in no-parking areas, and driving on the wrong side of the road. Stickers will be given to every offender.
- To promote people to follow more and more traffic rules, the traffic department also said that 2000 vehicles who are found following the traffic rules very strictly will be given caps f the ‘i-follow 21’ campaign.
“We expect people to follow the rules. Police will take help of the noted citizens to create awareness and their videos will be shared through social media” said Ajay Tommar, Police Commissioner.
