Nishchint Negi added, “many accidents happen due to sheer negligence and carelessness of drivers such as talking over mobile phones when driving. The police remains alert and keeps a check on violations such as drunken driving, over speeding, improper parking and others offences. Obeying traffic rules is in the interest of all as they increase safety levels for everybody.
