TANGLA, May 15: 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 to organize the traffic system.

A team of officials drawn from the district traffic police, transport and enforcement departments led by Bhaskar Dutta, DTO Udalguri, on Sunday undertook a drive at MB Road near the Tangla HS Field to pelize the drivers of overcrowded vehicles and those driving without helmets and driving licenses. In the drive, the authorities pelized drivers for overloading and two-wheeler drivers for not wearing helmets.

“We have launched such a drive to check the increasing number of road accidents. Similar spot-fine drives were taken out in the district town which drew huge revenue,” said an official of the team.

IC Traffic, So Ram Medhi said, “We have been regularly manning the roads, carrying out such drives in the town, but people are not cautious and prefer paying spot-fines instead.” Many two-wheeler riders were seen making excuses for not wearing helmets and some even indulged in verbal altercation, but none were spared.
