Traffic police defend imposition of heavy fines

November 30th, 2006

HYDERABAD: The traffic police have defended the heavy fines being imposed on motorists for violating rules like talking on mobile phones while driving, fancy number plates and the likes in the twin cities.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) A.K. Khan told presspersons on Wednesday after a coordination meeting with MCH Commissioner Sanjay Jaju that only a heavy fine would act as a deterrent as violators were absolutely nonchalant about paying simple fines.

He also said that the police would come down heavily on illegal parking on the roadsides.

He also appealed to the people to avoid taking the Begumpet road till the construction of the two flyovers was complete.
