Director Traffic, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Mahesh Mishra said there was still need for people to change their attitude and know that they must adhere to road rules.
“The laws are clear when it comes to being on our roads but some how people tend to think it doesn’t apply to them which are why we continue to record these bookings”.
He reiterated that a zero tolerance policy had been adopted by traffic officers across the country and people should be mindful that they would face the consequences of their actions.
