New Delhi: Elaborate arrangements have been made by Delhi Traffic Police to check drunken driving, over speeding and other traffic violations by revellers on the occasion of Holi on March 13.

Delhi Traffic Police has made elaborate traffic arrangements to ensure safety of motorists on roads and check the incidents of drunken driving, over-speeding, reckless driving, and other such violations of rules, said Garima Bhatnagar, Joint Commissioner of Traffic Police.

“Special checking teams with alcometers have been deployed at major intersections and vulnerable points to detect and prosecute traffic violations. In case of drunken driving, besides prosecution, the drivers are liable to be arrested and their vehicles impounded,” she said.

Action will be initiated against the registered owners of vehicles whose vehicles are found to be driven by minors, and those performing stunts on the roads, the officer said.

Traffic Police teams with interceptors along with PCR and local police will be stationed on various roads and strategic locations and roundabouts all over Delhi to check drunken driving, red light jumping and other traffic violations, added the officer.
