In the special drive by the Commissioner of police at 40 locations on 14 July from 8 PM to 11 PM as many as 201 cases were booked with regards to drunk driving.
This is one of the major drives against drunk driving in the city and in one day alone 201 cases have been slapped.
City traffic cops went on a 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.
