HYDERABAD: The city traffic police will continue the drive against drunken driving by women.

In the first phase of the drive, launched in the last week of February, traffic police could catch only one offender among a whole lot of women drivers.

When asked when the next phase of checking would be conducted, DCP (traffic) Ashok Kumar said there were suggestions for conducting the drive some time this week.

And the reason why the drive was not conducted this week- the answer from DCP A Ravi Krishna was simple: “surprise element”.

The department was considering to take up the checking on weekdays in addition to weekends.

The place, day and time for such drives will not be disclosed.

According to Ravi Krishna, a team of 15 police women will be asked to conduct the drive at a particular venue only an hour before the operation.

Currently the department has only one trained team of women personnel to conduct such special drives.

In the drive against drunken driving conducted on March 3, traffic police registered 186 cases.

The offenders include bank officials, advocates, chartered accountants and students.

The impounded vehicles include 112 cars, seven threewheelers and 67 bikes
