Bid to check traffic problems in Tangla

In view of the security for the ensuing declaration of Assembly election results on May 19 and growing road accidents , the Udalguri district administration has felt the need organise the traffic system.

A team of officials drawn from the district traffic police, transport and enforcement departments leaded by Bhaskar Dutta DTO Udalguri on Sunday undertook a drive at M.B Road near the Tangla HS Field to penalise the drivers of overcrowded vehicles and driving without helmets and driving licences.

In the drive, the authorities penalised drivers for overloading and two-wheeler drivers for not wearing helmets.

'We have taken out such drives ensuing growing accidents.Similar spot-fine drives were taken out in the district town which drew huge revenue,' said an official of the team.

IC traffic Sona ram Medhi of local police said "We have been regularly manning the road carrying out such drives in the town,but people seem not to be cautious and prefer paying spot-fines rather."

Many two-wheeler riders were seen making excuses for not wearing helmets some even indulged in verbal altercations but none were spared even women riders were seen paying spot-fines.
