One Month Of Relaxation Period Over
The people of Ludhiana were issued 683 challans by the Ludhiana police for drink driving, triple riding, wrong parking and riding vehicles without a helmet. The former police commissioner had ordered that the Ludhiana police will not be issuing challans for a month as a goodwill gesture.
On April 19, the drive was revised again and the police’s main focus is on these traffic violations: drink driving, triple riding, wrong parking and riding vehicles without a helmet.

Strict Fines For All The Traffic Violators
A traffic activist said that the department had been working effectively and efficiently since past few months and there was no need of giving a one-month relaxation to the people. He said in a month’s gap the Ludhiana police did not initiate any awareness drive. He was puzzled by the fact that why the former police commissioner had done that but he said it is time to enforce the law. He felt that the Ludhiana department has done a good thing by acting strictly against the traffic violators.
The commissioner of police in Ludhiana, traffic said that they have started the drive again and they are focusing on some particular traffic violations in some specific areas. He said that they will be increasing the restrictions with time and they are also working to maintain a smooth traffic flow in Ludhiana.
