3,952 TRAFFIC VIOLATORS FINED RS4.13 LAKH
NAVI MUMBAI: The Navi Mumbai traffic department penalised 3,952 motorists and collected a fine of Rs4.13 lakh from them between May 17 and June 6.
In its bid to prevent rising number of road accidents before rains in the city, the traffic police conducted a special drive against erring motorists. The special drive under the supervision of Arvind Salve, deputy commissioner of police (traffic) was to ensure that vehicles must have good tyres, tail lights, reflectors, wipers, mirrors, dipper lights, indicators, brake lights, mudguards, reflectors and T-mark on the rear side of trailers.
Such safety equipments can help minimise road accidents, he said, adding that a number of accidents take place when a stationary vehicle without tail-light or reflector is parked on road.
“There is a possibility of accidents due to slippery and pothole-ridden roads, and poor visibility in heavy rains,” Salve said. The drive will continue during the monsoon too, he added.
