Furthermore, the DIG added that the use of Mobile Phones while driving is also prohibited, and any person who is found using his phone will be served with a penalty.

The DIG added that the step is being taken in order to ensure discipline on the roads. He added that the violators of traffic rules are a menace not only to the flow of traffic but also to the safety of other drivers and pedestrians.

He added that the authorities will strictly enforce the abidance of rules on the road and take immediate action against those who are caught violating the rules.


  • The real menace to traffic is the idle traffic constables who just ignore the traffic jams, not guide the motorists, not prevent parking on main roads, but instead wait to pounce on transporters and bikers for a chance to threaten them with huge fines unless they give bribes.
    DIG traffic should secretly head out to problem areas and assess the situation himself if he is so determined to improve the traffic situation of the city.
    What about the bus drivers who stop at the middle of the road to take passengers? They cause more accidents than everyone else.
