Hyderabad | 13th January 2021
Following the rampant increase in drunk driving accidents in Hyderabad, the Cyberabad Traffic Police (CTP) had recently announced that it would be increasing checking to stop the people of the city from driving under the influence of alcohol.

This month, the CTP nabbed as many as 177 people for violating the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, and booked 137 bikers, and 9 autorickshaw and 31 car drivers, under drunken driving cases.

A statement released by the Cyberabad Traffic Police revealed that all the accused would be produced before court in due time.

"The driving licences of the accused have been seized, and will be forwarded to the relevant RTOs for suspension as per the law. We once again urge the citizens to make alternate transport arrangements for themselves when their travel is inevitable after they get drunk," the statement said.

The CTP had earlier made clear its intention to clamp down on any offenders, and had said, "First-time offenders will either be charged a fine of Rs 10,000 or be imprisoned for up to six months. Second-time offenders will be made to pay a fine of Rs 15,000 or imprisoned for two years."

As a part of its efforts to improve road safety in the city, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Vijay Kumar S M had also recently told the media that the CTP would be cracking down on bikers not complying with helmet use rules, through contact-less fines.
