Mylapore traffic police find it difficult to regulate lockdown rules among the motorists

Following the relaxation of intense lockdown, Mylapore traffic police are finding it hard to regulate lockdown rules among the motorists.

As all the major roads are set open now, police say motorists are thronging the streets from 10 am to 6 pm daily.

Says a traffic police attached to Mylapore police station, who monitors San Thome High Road, Kutchery Road and Luz Church Road, “It is very challenging to regulate rules now. Motorists are not following even basic traffic rules. While some are not wearing masks or helmets, others are moving on the wrong side of the road.”

Also, all two-wheelers, he says ride with pillion riders and cars carry more than 5 people with no social distancing in place.

This in spite of the government announcing that two-wheelers should ply only with the driver and cars should ferry only 3 people including the driver.

“We do warn the offenders and impose appropriate fines whenever necessary. But unless people understand the seriousness of the pandemic, virus spread cannot be contained.”
