PUDUCHERRY: As part of their efforts to streamline traffic and strictly enforce rules, the traffic police conducted checks, especially on two-wheeler riders, at three different places in the UT, and seized over 300 vehicles plying without proper documents.
Superintendent of Police (Traffic) A Gunasekaran told Express on Monday that vehicle riders were checked for documents, especially the driving licence.
The SP pointed out that 105 riders were caught without licence in just one hour, near Odiansalai police station.
Gunasekaran said the drive would continue in the coming days and warned of stringent action against riders without licence. The traffic police also conducted checks at Villianur and Mullodai.
Over 120 vehicles were seized during the drive conducted by Sub Inspector Senthil Kumar, near the Odiasalai police station.
It may be recalled that Inspector General of Police (IGP) Praveer Ranjan had hinted at stricter enforcement of traffic rules on assuming office.
Sources said since the police did not have space to park all the seized vehicles, the vehicles owners were asked to pay the fine in the local court.
