Traffic Police Can No Longer Ask You To Stop Your Car Aside And Here’s Why!

Here is a piece of good news for you if you own a car. The traffic police will no more ask you to stop your car aside and will not be able to check your vehicle without reason. This development comes from a circular that has been issued to the Traffic Department by the Commissioner of Police, recently in the wake of increasing traffic. 

Circular Issued To The Traffic Department

The circular issued by the Commissioner of Police, Hemant Nagrale, reads that the police in traffic will not stop or check vehicles, especially in the event of a barricade. They will simply observe the traffic and pay attention to its movement. Vehicles will only be stopped if it affects the traffic and is slowing their speed. Many a time merely on the basis of suspicion the traffic police stop the vehicle and check it inside out. This not only wastes people’s time but also affects the traffic by slowing it further. Hence the decision was taken by thinking about all of these.

The Senior Inspector Will Be Held Responsible

Despite the growing number of vehicles on the road, the traffic police have been instructed not to check vehicles anymore since the practice leads to traffic snarls. Traffic police officers will only enforce traffic violations during the joint traffic blockade with local police and will not check vehicles. The senior inspector of the concerned traffic post has responsibility if these instructions are not strictly adhered to. A senior official said that the cops will stop only the violators but continue to issue challans every time there is a traffic offence.
