The police are planning to deploy around 18,000 personnel on roads and public places in the city from New Year’s eve, for security. A senior police official said that 50 teams had been formed to step up vigil at night. The priority of these teams would be to keep a check on drunk drivers. “No leniency will be shown to anyone found driving drunk. Apart from fines, they will also be taken into custody to prevent them from further indulging in drunken driving. Those indulging in eve teasing too will not be spared,” said the official.

The police are also planning restrictions on movement of vehicles on Kamaraj Salai on New Year night.

They have already instructed luxury hotels and clubs to wind up celebrations by 1 am.
