Allahabad cops get strict on traffic rule violators; 61 challaned for rash driving

Allahabad traffic police intensified its road safety campaign at 14 accident-prone spots in the city following the increasing number of road accidents here and on highways.

Besides, cops also maintained strict vigil on traffic rule violators especially those who were caught over-speeding and rash driving. A total of 61 persons were challaned in the past 48 hours.

The death of over 40 persons in the past three months in separate cases of road accidents forced the traffic police to monitor road safety measures at black spots. A team of traffic constables and home-guards have also been deputed for round the clock monitoring. It has also been decided to depute more traffic policemen during the peak hours especially in old city areas.

After compiling a data base of road accidents reported in the past six months, as many as 14 spots are now under police scanner where board of black spots have also been installed asking commuters to be under speed limit.

A database on route wise road accidents and accident prevention measures at vulnerable areas in city and connecting highways will also be maintained.
