Speeding tops the list of the total infringement notices given by Police from January until the 9th of this month.
Police Director Traffic, SSP Mahesh Mishra says with more than 10 thousand infringement notices given to drivers, more than 5, 000 alone were for speeding.
“When you are speeding, you are risking your life, you are risking the innocent road users and again, when you speed, the reaction time for you to handle any situations becomes a high risk because you are travelling at a high speed and you have already put yourself at risk and you have a high chance of involving in an accident.”
SSP Mishra is urging drivers to remain within the speed limit and to respect passengers and other road users.
Police has also identified that attitude of drivers is a major concern and has re-activated the Operations Tatarovi to address the issue.
A total of five fatalities have been recorded so far on our roads compared to nine for the same period last year.
