3,000 traffic cops to keep eye on Mumbai’s roads on New Year’s Eve

Around 3,000 traffic police personnel will be posted on Mumbai’s roads from 10pm on December 31 to 4am on January 1 to ensure no drink driving and road rage incidents as the city gears up to usher in the New Year.

From no-parking zones to alternate routes and one-way roads, the police will have all their eyes on New Year’s Eve after a notification by the joint commissioner of traffic police, Amitesh Kumar, directed all chowkies to keep a watch on drink driving and speeding. Each chowkie will be in charge of at least four nakabandis.
