944 plus challans issued since implementation of MV Act 2019
Since the implementation of Motor Vehicles Act (Amendment) 2019, from September 25 till now, more than 944 challans have been issued by both district traffic police and City Patrol Unit (CPU) in Dehradun. Police have also submitted compounding fees of Rs 40,000.
Dehradun Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Arun Mohan Joshi said, “Our focus and forces have been divided into different programmes and major events organised in the district, but after November 9, our focus is back on traffic-related issues and such offences.”
When asked about traffic offences being major reason behind increasing toll of deaths in road accidents, he said, “It is unfortunate that even now people are not following the rules. The change will not really happen, until people start realising that wearing helmet is for their own security. Police cannot be stationed at every corner on a street.
The numbers of police personnel are limited, we cannot be everywhere. It is for the public to understand that following rules is not their obligation towards Government, but a necessity for their security.”
It is pertinent to mention here that, CPU has so far issued 655 challans out of which 64 have been compounded and Rs 20,500 has been submitted.
Similarly, district traffic police issued 289 challans, out of which 18 have been compounded and Rs 19,500 have been submitted.
