Drink And Drive Naakas In Chandigarh
Chandigarh Police is very strict when it comes to driving after consuming alcohol. Special Naakas are set up by the ChandigarhPolice to catch hold of the people who drive under the influence of alcohol.

The legal blood alcohol content allowed is 30ml.

The repeated defaulters for drunken driving will have to bear heavy fines and penalties. Recently, the local court suspended the license of a three-time defaulter for 6 months. A fine of Rs. 3000 was also imposed on the defaulter by the chief judicial magistrate.
Munish Matoor’s license was suspended under Section 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act. Munish is a resident of Sector 51, Chandigarh.
