Written by Shivaganga ChaturvediAdvertisingOVER four months after Pune City Police started an intensified drive to implement the helmet rule, over 65 per cent riders in Pune have started wearing helmets, said police officials.
On January 1 this year, Pune City Traffic Police had launched an intensified drive with the largest possible resource allocation and specific goals, after several failed attempts in the past to successfully implement the helmet rule.
Traffic personnel said while they continue to enforce the helmet rule by imposing fines, the focus is also on raising awareness and counselling the offenders.
Elaborating on traffic police’s strategy on counselling sessions, Deshmukh said, “We have already dedicated our headquarters at Shivajinagar to counselling.
However, with an average percentage over 60 in almost all divisions, the drive seems to have accomplished its aim, said police officials.
