Video: Now, license of traffic rule violators will be cancelled, warns CP

Sending a strong message to traffic rule offenders, the Commissioner of Police Dr K Venkatesham has said that from now on, license of traffic violator would be cancelled. “People should learn to respect their licenses. Once the license of a violator is cancelled, he or she would not receive his or her license. The RTO authorities would not issue fresh license without proper training to the license seeker,”he said

“When a person is issued license, he gives a word to the government to follow all the laid down traffic rules. He should respect the license and his word. And when he is not keeping his word, then the license will be cancelled. Simple,” Dr Venkatesham stressed.

The top cop said that 310 people died in accidents in 2016. Several steps are being initiated to create awareness about traffic rules and curb the accidents, he said.
