Mo­torists should ex­pect more Po­lice and Land Trans­port Au­thor­ity pres­ence on pub­lic roads over the long week­end.

Di­rec­tor of Traf­fic Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent of Po­lice (SSP) Ma­hesh Mishra said the Po­lice would en­sure driv­ers who take the law into their own hands would be taken to task.

“We will have a joint op­er­a­tion with LTA over the long week­end to en­sure our roads are safe to travel for all road users,” SSP Mishra said. “The point we would like to speak and stress on to the pub­lic, es­pe­cially our mo­torists who drink and drive, speed and per­form dan­ger­ous driv­ing, you must un­der­stand that you and other road users’ lives are pre­cious to us.” He said driv­ers caught driv­ing in a dan­ger­ous man­ner; and drunk driv­ers will be taken into cus­tody. “We want the mem­bers of the pub­lic to en­joy the long week­end and drive safely on our pub­lic roads to en­sure the safety of all road users around the coun­try,” SSP Mishra said.
