Traffic rules will be strictly monitored in Imphal area and immediate action will be taken against violators, a police official said on Wednesday.

“Violation of traffic rules will be monitored strictly especially in Imphal area in order to avoid traffic congestions and immediate action will be taken against every traffic violator, including security forces as traffic rules are mandatory for all,” Superintendent of Police, Traffic Kakchingtabam, Ajitkumar Sharma said.

Traffic police will be conducting frequent drives against traffic rules violators and necessary action will be taken as per law, the police official told mediapersons.

He said the traffic police wing has been taking necessary drives against traffic rules violators. With the development and widening of roads, speed driving has been increasing, particularly by the youths that often resulted in road mishap.

Lack of cooperation by commuters with the traffic police is also the main factor of traffic congestion and unwanted incidents on the roads, Ajitkumar said, adding that the commuters should obey traffic rules strictly and should be patient while waiting at red signal.

The SP continued that strict action will be taken against the traffic violators which included driving without helmet, without wearing seatbelt, without license, underage driving and others. He appealed to the parents and guardians not to encourage their under-age children to drive.

Ajitkumar further said that footpaths are for pedestrians and selling of products or occupying the area for personal purpose should be avoided immediately. If there is no space to walk on footpaths, pedestrians will automatically choose the roadside which is not safe at all.

Responding to the media, he said that traffic rules are mandatory for each citizen, including security forces and paramilitary forces. Illegal parking along the stretch of RIMS road, Nagamapal road, Babupara and other main roads will be monitored and necessary action will be taken against traffic violators.

He appealed to all the people of Manipur to strictly follow traffic rules as the rules are implemented for their safety but not to harass them.
