Nagpur: “Traffic regulations coupled with strict enforcement not only ensures traffic movement with ease but also instil discipline among citizens and this ultimately deters traffic snarls,” said Commissioner of Police, Amitesh Kumar at Nagpur Press Club, Civil Lines on Wednesday.
The top cop was speaking at ‘Meet-the-Press’ programme organised by the Nagpur Union of Working Journalists (NUWJ), in association with Tilak Patrakar Bhavan Trust (TPBT) and Nagpur Press Club (NPC)

Interacting with the media Kumar discussed various topics including traffic, crime, criticism and also got nostalgic about his previous experiences in the Second Capital of the State.
“Criticism enables a chance of evaluation. Bound with root level media ensures that significant points should come to fore. Police always welcome criticism as it helps us to remotely understand the issue at large,” said Kumar.
New traffic movements in pipeline:
“We’ve often found violators repeating the mistakes. To curb the flourishing irregularities, we’ve decided to seize the vehicle of the violator for one day and asked them to correct their share of drawbacks, only then they will be handovered the vehicle. Nagpur Traffic Department has formed 20 flying squads in this regard. 10 teams will focus on strict enforcement of the norms while 10 will keep an eagle-eye on vehicles causing traffic chaos,” he said.
