The traffic police have launched a special drive to improve vehicular movement in the city. As part of the efforts, the credentials of as many as 300 auto drivers have also been registered so far.

“We have asked auto drivers to get registered starting Wednesday and around 300 drivers are on our list now. We have taken their photo, finger prints and all the other information to make a database. This exercise will certainly help the police to keep a track of them,” said Bharti Arora, DCP traffic.

The drive was carried at Mahavir Chowk on MG Road where a number of volunteers participated.

The police also fined 100 bikers for not wearing helmets.

The department has asked Municipal Corporation Gurgaon (MCG) to remove encroachment from the area to decongest city roads. In their bid to educate drivers, officials also asked commuters to follow the lane system to avoid traffic jams.

“They often violate the rule which causes chaos. We asked auto volunteers to instruct their colleagues to follow regulations,” said Bharti Arora, DCP traffic

“We have done the same exercise at Iffco Chowk and other parts of the city to make traffic smooth for commuters. We are getting positive response from the public and the exercise will continue till May 15,” she added.
