If you don’t want your New Year party to end up in jail, then think twice before you drive after your drink on 31st. With more than 100 Static/Mobile/ decoy teams and regular checks from 10 P.M. onwards H.T.P are all set to make the roads a safer place to travel. In a recent press release from the Commissionerate, Hyderabad Traffic police has planned several measures and drives to ensure the safety of citizens on NYE.
In a stern message to all merry makers set to take their parties on the road, the Hyderabad traffic police have issued certain guidelines and measures especially for 31st evening. H.T.P. will have traffic cops posted on 100-odd motorcycles to detect and prosecute drunk drivers. It also stated that if caught drunk driving this Saturday, you could be spending the night in a police lock-up while your bike/Car is seized. Anyone measuring more than 25 ml/gm of alcohol can be booked. As per the current law for drunken driving apart from fines up to Rs 10,000, suspension of driving license, it also includes a jail sentence ranging from 7 days to 6 months. This year around 7,500 cases have been booked which resulted in imprisonment and fine. Also, a new amendment has been introduced to link the case details data to Job Verification/ Visa & Pass port issuance and etc through AADHAR card details.
H.T.P has also released certain guidelines to all the Clubs/Pub’s/Resorts and Lounges in the city vicinity stating that alcohol shouldn’t be served to any individual below the age of 21 and one person per group shouldn’t be served alcohol. Breathe analyzers have to be instated in the premises for a voluntary check and anyone above the limit should be denied to drive their vehicles. A sound limit of 45 decibels for DJs and sound systems should also be followed by obtaining prior permissions from the respective police stations. If anyone found violating any of the above laws strict action would be taken resulting in serious troubles for the individual.
Looks like, binge watching t.v. shows with moderate drinking is better than going berserk and “binge drinking” on this NYE.
