OC of Traffic Control Police, Churachandpur inspector James Vaiphei said that with the coming of the festive season, they had relaxed their drives. But with rampant violations of rules by drivers, they decided to resume the active drive which is important for the safety of the two wheeler drivers, he said. As the assembly election is also approaching, the need to impose rules is required, he further said, adding that the drives will continue and urged all to comply with the law and rules.
