Police book offenders

NINE hundred and sixty seven drivers were booked for speeding during the Easter weekend.

Police director traffic SSP Mahesh Mishra said for the three-day operations, 44 drivers were booked for careless driving and another 44 were booked for failing to use their seat belt.

SSP Mishra said apart from the drivers who were booked for speeding and careless driving, 20 were arrested for drink-driving and three for carrying excessive passengers.

He said the mission of the Easter long weekend operation was to achieve safer roads, safer vehicles and safer drivers by controlling accident-related offences and achieving zero fatalities.

He said while police managed to achieve zero road fatalities during the Easter weekend, the other concerns was continuous drivers' disregard for road rules.

While he acknowledged the support of the general public in adhering to road safety rules, he noted, however, the presence of a few drivers who needed to seriously adopt a change of mind-set for the safety of the traveling public.
