People may approach these centres for any clarification and they will be provided parking space.

Police officials (ASI and above) need to adopt one circle or junction and take care of it on a regular basis. The entire responsibility is on them. The best-operated junction will be duly awarded at the end of the month.

When the vehicular traffic is more, emphasis should be on the smooth flow of the vehicles. If there is any deliberate traffic violation, he or she needs to be penalised. Vehicles that are on the move can’t be stopped for any verification. If a rider or a driver is found using a mobile, driving without a seat belt, drunk driving, triple riding, signal jump, going in the wrong direction, he or she can be stopped.

The traffic police need to be transparent in their approach. They should not stop any vehicle all of a sudden or snatch the key from the driver or rider or talk in a rude manner. They have been advised not to get into arguments under any circumstances.

If any driver or rider is found to misbehave with the police, a case has to be registered against him for the law to take its own course.  (MR/KS)
