More than 400 vehicles were fined for illegal parking in Connaught Place on Wednesday evening as the traffic police resumed its drive against violators.
A total of 445 vehicle owners were challaned for obstructive parking in CP and 33 vehicles were impounded.
“Places like Palika parking is not used beyond 60-70 per cent of its capacity. People should use designated lots,” said DCP Traffic (New Delhi Range) Suvashish Chaudhary.
In the southern range, action was taken against 191 jaywalkers. Another drive in west district saw action being taken against Blueline buses (138) and autorickshaws (132) while 596 two-wheeler drivers were challaned in southwest district.
