TAMBARAM: A sum of Rs.2.76 crore was collected as fine for traffic violations in the suburbs of Chennai this year.
Riding two-wheelers without helmets, parking vehicles in restricted areas and obstructing the free flow of traffic topped the list of violations by the motorists.
Chennai Suburban Traffic Police officials said that apart from an increase in the number of police teams to initiate action against erring motorists, the checks were also conducted on interior roads and localities. Earlier, the checks were conducted largely on important arterial roads. The law and order police personnel from the local stations were also involved in initiating action against those violating traffic rules.
Till 30 November, 2.25 lakh cases were booked, said G. Karthikeyan, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Traffic. Of them, riding motorcycles and scooters without wearing helmets formed 15 per cent of the violations, followed by parking of vehicles in “no parking” spots, which was at 14 per cent. Vehicles with defective number plates accounted for 7 per cent.
