Noida traffic police has planned an intensive crackdown on school students using motorcycles, scooters and cars to commute to schools and tuition centres. Under the drive, the traffic police will fine minors found driving.

Superintendent of police (traffic) RN Yadav said the traffic police have already appealed to most schools asking them not to allow students to use motorcycles and cars to commute to schools.

A team of traffic police will also organise seminars and workshops in various schools to make students aware of traffic rules and regulations.

“In seminars, we instruct students not to drive a vehicle before getting their licence and to never have two pillion riders. As per the Motor Vehicles Act, a minor found using a vehicle can be fined Rs 500. A minor who drives a vehicle endangers their own life and that of other commuters,” RN Yadav said.

“We have planned a drive in which traffic and civil police will check vehicles near schools and tuition centres. We appeal to parents not to allow their children to drive vehicles without valid licence or documents,” he said.
