Bhubaneswar: Fine amount of Rs 25 crore has been collected from traffic rule violators in the Twin City of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar in about one year, said Police Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi here today.
Speaking at the valedictory event of month-long Traffic Awareness Month, the senior cop said on the basis of CCTV footages, around 350 challans are being issued every day over violation of traffic rules. The number will further increase in next two to three months.
” Within around one year following implementation of stricter traffic rules, Rs 25 crore has been collected as fine from the violators in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar. Do not ever think that you can escape after violating the traffic rules. You will definitely be caught one day and face the music for the offence,” the CP cautioned.
He further said, “There are certain people who are still not obeying the traffic rules and waiting for the cops to catch hold of them. Then only they will be cautious.”
