Spurred by dip in drink driving cases, the police now plan to teach college students all about traffic rules
Mumbai traffic cops will soon take over the role of professors in colleges to teach traffic rules and regulations.
After the dip in number of drink driving cases in Mumbai, traffic police now aims to bring down the number of drunken drivers between the age group of 18-25. The police say that most of the drink-driving offenders are in that category.
“The offenders of most of the rash driving and drink driving cases are youngsters in the age group of 18-26. So we have decided to conduct lectures for college students in the coming academic year 2010-2011. We plan to present examples of a few drink-driving cases and fatal accidents. The aim is to make the youth more responsible,” said Nandkumar Chaugule, DCP Traffic (City).
