Officiating senior superintendent of police (SSP, traffic) Manoj Kumar Meena released a ‘mirror public awareness book’ at the Lyon’s light point near the municipal corporation office in Sector 17 on Thursday.
The book will be shown to traffic violators before issuing a challan. The SSP said, “The book has a mirror on the first page. People will be asked to look into the it before being issued a challan. The next page has blood and bandages on the mirror. People will be asked if they want to end up spending money on hospital bills or spending their life in a wheelchair.”
