CHANDI­GARH: Be­ware if you jump the red light. For the UT traf­fic po­lice have now de­cided to catch hold of the traf­fic vi­o­la­tor by chas­ing him.

Elab­o­rat­ing about the new idea, SP (traf­fic) Ma­neesh Chaud­hary said the traf­fic po­lice mo­tor­cy­cles would not re­main sta­tion­ary any more. They would now chase the vi­o­la­tors as soon as they no­tice any glar­ing vi­o­la­tion. He added the traf­fic po­lice had 20 mo­tor­cy­cles at its dis­posal. "These ve­hi­cles will be pressed into ser­vice for chal­lan­ing the traf­fic vi­o­la­tors."

He added that the po­lice per­son­nel have been asked to note down the reg­is­tra­tion num­ber of a ve­hi­cle in case the ve­hi­cle does not stop.

On Tues­day, Chaud­hary in­spected all these ve­hi­cles.

Even though CCTV cam­eras are in­stalled, they fail to cap­ture the reg­is­tra­tion num­bers.

Mean­while, the Chandi­garh traf­fic po­lice pre­pared 20,000 pam­phlets cre­at­ing aware­ness on black films.
