The Saturday weekends for those who love to booze and then drive home is not the same as before, the Police has intensified their drive against Drink and Drive.
On Saturday as many as 50 cases were booked from 8 PM to 11 PM in the city from various areas.
In July this drive was undertaken by the police but due to some reasons it was not implemented effectively in August, but on Saturday again 50 persons were booked for drink and drive in the city.
City traffic cops went on an overdrive to instill traffic rules across city limits. Each day they are undertaking different issues and trying to instill traffic rules in the city may it be pavement clearance, the non-wearing of helmets, fancy number plates etc.
The rising number of cases highlights the need for more aggressive awareness campaigns and stricter action by police.
Today, drinking has become a craze. It is common even at family gatherings. This makes it extremely difficult to curb drinking, which is no longer restricted to special occasions, like New Year’s Eve. Everyone (when drunk) feels that s/he is in full control of their senses. Greater, aggressive awareness is necessary to make citizens realize the inherent risks.
