Noida police collects Rs 59 crore

During the ‘Traffic Month’ observed in Uttar Pradesh from November 1 to November 30, the traffic police in Gautam Buddha Nagar district cracked down on road safety violations and conducted awareness campaigns. Despite being 14th in the state for road accident deaths, the district witnessed numerous traffic rule violations. In November alone, 2,51,398 challans were issued, amounting to a fine of Rs 59,29,11,000. The focus was on violations like driving without a helmet and wrong-side driving. The traffic police organized awareness campaigns, health checkups, and administered oaths to follow traffic rules for various groups, including transport unions, students, and teachers. Reflective tape was installed on vehicles for foggy conditions, and efforts were made to eliminate identified blackspots. The month also marked the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, paying tribute to those who lost their lives in accidents. Despite these efforts, Uttar Pradesh continues to grapple with a high number of road accident-related deaths, with overspeeding being a major contributing factor.
