NEW DELHI: Encouraged by successful enforcement of lane discipline and other traffic rules on 10 stretches, the Delhi Traffic Police have expanded the drive by including five more road corridors.
Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Satyendra Garg said the new stretches including Modi Mill flyover to Rao Tula Ram Marg on Outer Ring Road, Vinay Marg to Africa Avenue, from Teen Murti roundabout, Akbar Road to C-Hexagon, from ITO on Vikas Marg to Karkari Mor and Nizamuddin to Ghazipur on National Highway 24.
During the drive, traffic policemen would be posted along the roads and intersections to ensure that commuters are following the lane discipline. As per rule, buses must ply on the left lane, slow moving vehicles like auto-rickshaws on the middle and fast moving vehicles on the right lane.
During the drive, those blocking the bus lane would be challaned for improper parking. Traffic policemen would also be deployed at the bus shelters to ensure that the buses stop there. Buses violating lane rule will be slapped a challan of Rs.2,000 each.
Mr. Garg said the drive has yielded positive results so far. “It has worked well on the Naraina-Ashram stretch,” he added. About a fortnight ago, the police had launched the drive on ten stretches including Tilak Marg, Lodhi Road, Nelson Mandela Marg and Outer Circle in Connaught Place.
