Transport department to intensify drive against traffic offenders

Assamese NewsTransport department to intensify drive against traffic offenders

Dispur, July 31: A team of officials from the Transport department’s enforcement wing stepped up their drive against offenders for flouting road safety rules and other norms. 

A drive was conducted on Friday night against drunken driving and non wearing of helmet in greater Guwahati areas. Of the total 42 offence cases registered, seven cases were related to drunken driving and 35 without helmets. 

The team from the enforcement wing of the Transport department was ably assisted by the city’s police and traffic personnel. Transport department authorities revealed that they will intensity their drive against traffic violations including not wearing helmets, not using seat-belts, over-speeding, overloading, rash driving and vehicles plying without valid fitness certificates.

It may be mentioned that 31 city buses were seized and 20 cases registered for offences like non issuance of ticket, boarding through front door, doors flung open while running, haphazard parking on stoppages, non display of route number, permit number, route diversion, waiting at a stoppage for more than a minute, rash overtaking, undue halt on non designated stoppage and misbehaving with passengers. 

As 70 per cent of accidents happen due to overspeeding leading to loss of precious lives, the Transport department has issued the speed limit notification. In order to detect and control overspeeding, the department has deployed tripod mounted speed radar guns and traffic interceptor vehicles with speed detection ANPR cameras across the state.
