HYDERABAD: Motorists who do not stop when the traffic signal turns red, those who speak over phone while driving or are reckless about following other rules but caught thrice or more by the traffic police better start making alternative plans to travel as officials are crunching data to list out people who violated traffic rules three or more times.

The purpose of charting out the names is to temporarily suspend their licences.

The traffic police will forward the names of such offenders to the transport department which will suspend the licence for three to six months.

The offenders, who are still optimistic about not getting caught and drive vehicles when licence is under suspension, will be prosecuted. Often, people are seen zooming away in vehicles before signal turns red or overspeed cutting across lanes.

Apart from checks against those driving without valid licence, without wearing helmet, the city traffic police have been catching people who overspeed, drive while talking over phone, jump signals, drive while drunk and overloaded vehicles.

“Data is being gathered on people who were caught for three or more times for violating traffic rules. Their driving licence will be suspended for three to six-months. If they are caught again driving during suspension of their DL, they will be prosecuted,” said AV Ranganath, DCP (Traffic-II).

Strict Action

  • Driving licence of people who were caught for three or more times violating traffic rules, will be temporarily suspended.
  • Hyderabad traffic police will forward the names of such people to the transport department.
  • If caught driving without valid licence, they will be prosecuted.
