Expect a traffic police campaign to rein in Delhi motorists who don’t stick to their lanes on the roads.

Delhi motorists — notorious for zigzag driving — came into focus at a security meet of heads of foreign missions on Wednesday.

The top brass of India’s security establishment had finished a series of presentations on the security preparations for the Games when a diplomat complained about Delhi’s drivers.

“Delhi drivers are very bad. They do not drive in lanes. Please ask them to drive in lanes,” the High Commissioner of Mauritius, M Choonee, said.

Union Home Secretary GK Pillai took note of the concern and later told reporters that the traffic police would launch a campaign to educate motorists over the next one year.

More than 2,000 people lose their lives every year in road accidents in Delhi.
