Notably, the commuters within the city have been facing traffic snarls for the past six years amid construction work for multiple road projects. That, however, seems to have had no impact on speeding, with violators finding a way to breach the speed limit.

Commuters did receive some relief this month after the authorities had thrown open a section of the Ferozepur elevated road — from Bhai Bala Chowk to Sidhwan Canal and vice versa — for vehicular traffic. Earlier, the authorities had thrown open the railway overbridge at Pakhowal road for traffic and another leg of elevated road.

Deputy commissioner of police (DCP, traffic) Varinder Brar said the police have set up speeds radar at different places including at the National Highway, near the Jagraon Bridge, the elevated road at Ludhiana-Ferozepur road’s stretch from Jalandhar By-pass to Samrala Chowk, added that most speeding cases in the last month has been reported on recently-opened sections of the elevated road.

Police, he said, are planning to install speed radars in the vicinity on rotation basis.

Of the 2,179 challans issued for speeding between March to September, the maximum challans were issued in June at 423, while minimum challans were issued in April at 156.
